Abstract/Contents:"In the past couple of decades, St. Augustinegrass has become extremely popular in southern states due to some cultivars' ability to thrive in sandy soils and across many environments in warm climate regions. Despite its popularity and the vast knowledge of physical and breeding aspects of the species, there is little known about the genetic makeup of the grass. Like most grasses, St. Augustinegrass is extremely heterozygous making it difficult to create genome assemblies, and to date no genome reference sequence exists. Raleigh, a prominent diploid cultivar developed by the North Carolina State University breeding program has been noted to be more cold-tolerant than other St. Augustinegrass genotypes. However, it is susceptible to the fungal disease known as Gray Leaf Spot, which is caused by many species of fungus, one being Pyricularia oryzae, that is found in warm, humid regions. A germplasm collection line, PI410353, was previously discovered to be more resistant to the pathogen. Therefore, both Raleigh and PI410353 were sequenced using PacBio Circular Consensus Sequencing (CCS) technology to develop two reference genomes for St. Augustinegrass containing full representation of both haplotypes creating a complete set of 4 haplotype sequences."
