De novo Assembly and Characterization of Swertia japonica Transcriptome for the Identification of Candidate Genes Involved in the Biosynthesis of Therapeutic Metabolites

ABSTRACT: Here, we performed deep transcriptome sequencing for the aerial-tissues and the roots of S. japonica, generating over 2 billion raw reads with an average length of 101 nt by using an Illumina paired-end sequencing by HiSeq2000 platform. Using a combined approach of three popular assemblers, de novo transcriptome assembly for S. japonica was obtained, yielding in 81,729 unigenes with an average length as 884bps and N50-value as 1,452bps, with 46,963 unigenes being annotated based on the sequence similarity against NCBI-nr protein database.

Here, we report potential transcripts involved in the biosynthesis of therapeutic metabolites in Swertia japonica , the first report of transcriptome assembly, and characterization of the medicinal plant from Swertia genus. Swertia genus, representing over 170 plant species including herbs such as S. chirata, S. hookeri, S. longifolia, S. japonica, among others, have been used as the traditional medicine in China, India, Korea, and Japan for thousands of years. Due to the lack of genomic and tra  ...[more]
