In recent years date palm has been subjected to intensive genome sequencing studies. The date palm chloroplast genome was reported by Yang et al. 2010 with an approximate length of about 158,462 bp. The date palm chloroplast sequences were deposited in Genbank with Accession Number: "NC_013991".
The mitochondrial genome was assembled by Fang et al. 2012 with an approximate length of about 715,001 bp. this sequence deposited in Genbank with Accession Number: :NC_016740". The first nuclear genome sequence of date palm was published by Al-Dous et al. 2011. It covered ~60% of the genome which represent ~380 Mb (25,059 genes) out of the 658Mb estimated genome size.
They recognized more than 3.5 million polymorphic sites among the nine investigated varieties of date palm. All sequences were deposited in Genbank under Accession Number: "ACYX02000000". Also, Al-Mssallem et al. 2013 reported the second nuclear genome assembly which is about 605.4 Mb and covers 90% of the date palm genome.All sequences were deposited in Genbank with BioProject ID "PRJNA83433".
Hazzouri et al. 2015 reported the whole genome re-sequencing of a collection of 62 date palm cultivars. The following table showing all 62 date palm cultivars genbank accession numbers.
