Avocado transcriptome assembly from pooled leaf, stem, bud, root, floral and fruit tissue. Using normalized cDNA libraries, we generated comprehensive RNA-Seq datasets using the Illumina NextSeq 500 platform. 63420 of avocado unigenes respectively were generated and functionally annotated using a combination of de novo transcriptome assembly, redundancy reduction and Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST) searches to the Universal Protein Resource UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot database.
