Data Availability: This genome has been made available on GDV pre-publication as a public service, and in agreement with the Fort Lauderdale agreement, the V. microcarpum genome is being made available by the authors prior to peer-reviewed publication of the data. The authors and GDV are making this data available with the expectation and desire to publish this data in a reasonable time without preemption by other groups.  By accessing these data, you agree not to publish any articles containing analyses of genes or genomic data on a whole genome or chromosome scale prior to publication by the original authors of a comprehensive genome analysis ("Reserved Analyses"). "Reserved analyses" include the identification of complete (whole genome) sets of genomic features such as genes, gene families, regulatory elements, repeat structures, GC content, or any other genome feature, and whole-genome or chromosome-scale comparisons with other species.

Pre-publication, the genome gene and mRNA features can be searched within the GDV database, the genome can be viewed in JBrowse, and sequences can be queried against the genome sequence using the BLAST tool.  Upon publication, data files will be made available for download.  If you would like early access to the files before publication, please contact the corresponding authors, Juan Zalapa ( and Luis Diaz-Garcia (
