The group around Xiurong ZHANG reports a high-quality genome sequence of the 2.1 Mb genome, containing an estimated 27,148 genes. The results reveal novel, independent whole genome duplication. Candidate genes and oil biosynthetic pathways contributing to high oil content were discovered by comparative genomic and transcriptomic analyses.
