Table 1 Descriptive characteristics for three draft taro genome assemblies. The pseudochromosome-level taro assembly (“Ps_chr”) was composed from a linked-read assembly (“LR”) that was gap-filled using contigs assembled from nanopore MinION long-reads (merge step, “Merged”), filtered for assembly artifacts, and then concatenated into pseudochromosomes using a linkage map.
