Flax (Linum usitatissimum) is also known as linseed. It is an ancient crop that is widely cultivated as a source of ﬁber, oil and medicinally relevant compounds.
We sequenced the genome to a depth of approximately 69 X with short reads from a series of libraries with various insert sizes ( 300bp, 500bp, 2kb, 5kb and 10kb) on a HiSeq 2000 sequencer.
The assembled scaffolds of high quality sequences total 25.9 Gb, with the contig and scaffold N50 values of 20.1 kb and 0.7 Mb respectively. We identified 43,484 protein-coding genes.
