AbstractThe first draft of the carrot genome of an orange inbred line, “DC-27,” was published in 2014. However, the genome assembly was fragmented and not assembled to the chromosome level, which limited its application for comprehensive genetic and genomic analyses. In 2016, a high-quality chromosome level, genome assembly of a doubled-haploid orange carrot DH1 was published, which rapidly advanced carrot genetic and genomic studies. The sequenced genome enabled the ability to identify candidate genes underlying important agronomic and nutrition-related traits such as root development, the accumulation of terpenoids, β-carotenes, and anthocyanins. Genome-level contributions include the clarification of phylogenetic relationships within carrot germplasm and the elucidation of the evolutionary history within the Euasterid II and Euasterid I clades. In this chapter, a description of the history of efforts made to characterize the carrot genome in the pre- and post-genomic era and the partners involved in the development of the high-quality carrot genome assembly are also described.
