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 novel orientation scheme was agreed upon by the oat community after v1 of OT3098 was made available. The chromosome names and structure are correct, but the positions will change for a subset of the chromosomes because we will invert/flip the entire chromosome. Following this chromosome orientation will allow current and future A. sativa assemblies to have consistent nomenclature.
