Worldwide ash species genomes

The v0.1 assemblies for the majority of taxa listed below have now been published in Nature Ecology & Evolution; if referring to these assemblies please cite:

Kelly, L.J., Plumb, W.J., Carey, D.W. et al. Convergent molecular evolution among ash species resistant to the emerald ash borer. Nat Ecol Evol 4, 1116–1128 (2020).

Since March 2017 we have been uploading early access data for these ash species from around the world under the Fort Lauderdale agreement. Some of these data have now been published; see the pages for individual species for further details.

Update 27th April 2020: We have amended some of the taxon names following redetermination of some individuals used for genome sequencing (for further details see here); the original names the genome assemblies were first released under are given in parentheses.
