  • This dataset is available as supplement for a research article submitted in 2018 and accepted in 2019. Genomic resources for the Neotropical tree genus Cedrela (Meliaceae) and its relatives. By Kristen N. Finch, B.A.; F. Andrew Jones, Ph.D.; Richard Cronn, Ph.D. Tree species in the genus Cedrela are threatened by timber overexploitation across the Neotropics. Genetic identification of processed timber can be used to supplement wood anatomy to assist in the taxonomic and source validation of protected species and populations of Cedrela. However, few genetic resources exist that enable both species and source identification of Cedrela timber products. We developed several genomic resources including a leaf transcriptome, chloroplast genome, and diagnostic single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that may assist the classification of Cedrela specimens to species and geographic origin. In this supplementary directory, we share the assembled transcriptome reference, hybridization capture probe sequences, and the chloroplast genome reference for a single specimen, CEOD_NYBG (C. odorata from the living collection at the New York Botanical Garden). We also include: chloroplast genome sequences for each of the 43 specimens screened in our diversity panel (as separate files and as a combined file, aligned and unaligned), the VCF file containing SNPs for species and origin prediction for Cedrela, and data sets to replicate our statistical analysis using R. By sharing these resources, we hope to enable future research on this widespread Neotropical tree genus.
