On August 22, the research group of Wang Zonghua of the State Key Laboratory of Ecological Pest Control of Fujian and Taiwan Crops of FAFU published online a research paper entitled PacBio Sequencing Reveals Transposable Element as a Key Contributor to Genomic Plasticity and Virulence Variation” in the internationally renowned journal 《Molecular Plant》. They achieved the construction of Magnaportheoryzae’s detailed reference genome by using the PacBio single molecule real-time sequencing technology, and revealed that transposable element was a key contributor to genomic plasticity and virulence variation in Magnaportheoryzae. This work provided valuable resources for the control of rice blast and the functional genomics studies in Magnaportheoryzae.

This achievement was the result of a cooperation of multiple researchers of FAFU, such as Bao Jiandong, Justice Norvienyeku, Wang Baohua and Wang Zonghua, and Bao Jiandong, Chen Meilian. Zhong Zhenhui and Tang Wei were the co-first authors, and Wang Zonghua, Wang Baohua and Justice Norvienyeku were the co-corresponding authors of the paper. The study was supported by National Natural Science Foundation of China (U1305211, 91231121 and 31301621), National Key Research and Development Program (2016YFD0300700) and FAFU’s Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars (XJQ201511). The sequencing work was completed by the Center for Genomics and Biotechnology of FAFU, and the research team of Center for Genomics and Biotechnology participated in the study; Minjiang University also partially participated in the work.
