Details for species Solanum tuberosum
Potato (Solanum tuberosum) is the most cultivated Solanaceae in the world. It originated in the highlands of South America. It is a model for the study for the tuberization process (1, 2, 3, 4), starch synthesis (5, 6, 7) and response to pathogens (8, 9). Extensive comparative maps with other Solanaceae exits (10, 11).
The Solanum tuberosum genome is being sequenced by the Potato Genome Sequencing Consortium (PGSC). See Potato Genome Sequencing Project.

The potato data were mostly obtained from the potato genomics project funded by the NSF. Most libraries were prepared in the laboratory of Prof. Steven Tanksley at Cornell University. Some tissues for the libraries were obtained from Christian Bachem and Richard Visser, Department of Plant Breeding, Wageningen University, The Netherlands, and a number of libraries were obtained from the laboratory of Prof Barbara Baker of UC Davis, CA. The most recent Solanum tuberosum build contains ca. 50,000 sequences from the Canadian Potato Genome Project that were kindly submitted by Prof. Barry Flinn and associates.
