Since the release of Arabidopsis genome sequences in 2000, more than 400 plant genome sequences have become available. Meanwhile, multiple technologies and bioinformatics tools have been developed to sequence, assemble, annotate, and analyze the plant genomes. All these data and tools have greatly helped us to better understand the evolutionary histories of plant species and provide genomics resources for molecular studies on economically important traits.
