De novo assembly and characterization of transcriptome and microsatellite marker development for Taro (Colocasia esculenta (L.) Schott.)

Taro (Colocasia esculenta. (L.) Schott) is a genus of perennial plants that is widely distributed in the tropics or subtropics of Asia, Africa and America, which is the fourteenth most consumed vegetable of the world. However, molecular genetic research of Colocasia has been hindered by the insufficient genomic and transcriptome information. Here, the transcriptome of taro variety ‘Jingjiang Xiangsha’ from...
