Sesame (Sesamum indicum L.; family Pedaliaceae; order Lamiales) is an ancient and important oilseed crop grown widely in tropical and subtropical areas. Using next generation sequencing, we assembled the whole genome sequence of sesame, and analyzed its evolutionary history and important characteristics. In this project, whole-genome shotgun (WGS) sequencing strategy, based on paired short reads generated by second-generation Illumina GA sequencing technology, was used to assemble the draft genome of Sesamum indicum. We assembled 274 Mb (77.4% of the estimated genome) of the sesame genome and annotated 27,148 genes. Using a newly constructed genetic map, 150 larger scaffolds were anchored to 16 pseudomolecules, representing 85.3% of the assembly in size and 91.7% of the predicted genes.
