Revised Important Announcement [Updated on April 1, 2021 based on ongoing discussions about chromosome naming]: Version 2 of the oat OT3098 reference assembly is currently underway. This new version will include gap filling as well as reorientation/flipping of some chromosomes. A revised phylogeny-based nomenclature and orientation scheme was agreed upon by the oat community after v1 of OT3098 was made available. The finalized revision of chromosome orientation and numbering is awaiting final approval by a nomenclature committee.
