Cacao genome sequenced

The following is an excerpt.

The genome of the most commonly cultivated cacao plant in the world is now sequenced and was revealed in the open access journal Genome Biology this week. Researchers have utilized high quality DNA sequences and comparison between different plants to demonstrate the usefulness and quality of the sequence to identify genetic markers that can lead to higher yielding cocoa plants that still produce better tasting cocoa, according to a release.
