- Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) is a member of the Solanaceae, an economically important family that includes tomato, pepper, aubergine (eggplant), petunia and tobacco. Potato belongs to the asterid clade of eudicot plants that represents ,25% of flowering plant species and from which a complete genome sequence has not yet, to our knowledge, been published. Potato occupies a wide eco-geographical range and is unique among the major world food crops in producing stolons (underground stems) that under suitable environmental conditions swell to form tubers.
- Its worldwide importance, especially within the developing world, is growing rapidly. The tubers are a globally important dietary source of starch, protein, antioxidants and vitamins, serving the plant as both a storage organ and a vegetative propagation system. Despite the importance of tubers, the evolutionary and developmental mechanisms of their initiation and growth remain elusive. .
