The genome assembly of the European aspen Populus tremula proved difficult for a short-read based strategy due to high genomic variation. As a consequence, the fragmented sequence is impeding studies that benefit from highly contiguous data, particularly genome-wide association studies (GWAS) and comparative genomics. Here we present an updated assembly based on long-read sequences, optical mapping and genetic mapping. This assembly - henceforth referred to as Potra V2 - is assembled into 19 contiguous chromosomes which provides a powerful tool for future association studies. The genome sequence and any feature files are available from the PopGenIE resource.
