lDe novo genome assemblies for 26 representative wild and cultivated soybeans were performed by PacBio SMRT sequencing with the aid of optical mapping by Bionano Irys System
lA graph-based pangenome is constructed which identified numerous genetic variations that cannot be detected by short read sequencing
lIdentification of thousands of structural variants and dozens of gene fusions
lLinked the structural variations to gene expressions and agronomic traits
lThis pan-genome resource help to promote evolutionary and functional genomics studies in soybean
