A pangenome is a collection of genomic sequences found in the entire species rather than a single individual. It allows for comprehensive, species-wide characterization of genetic variations and mining of variable genes which may play important roles in phenotypes of interest. Recent advances in sequencing technologies have facilitated draft genome sequence construction and have made pangenome constructions feasible. Here, we present a reference genome-based iterative mapping and assembly method to construct a pangenome for a legume species.
