Herbicide Resistance in Ipomoea purpurea: De Novo Assembly & Transcriptome Annotation

This study presents the annotated transcriptome of the common morning glory, Ipomoea purpurea, and examines gene expression differences between herbicide-resistant and susceptible lines. The assembled transcriptome contains 65,459 transcripts, with 19 differentially expressed genes linked to herbicide resistance. This research not only identifies potential resistance loci for further investigation but also significantly expands genomic resources for this species and related plant families.
