The Genomic Data of Chimonanthus salicifolius
Chimonanthus salicifolius, a member of the family Calycanthaceae of magnoliids, is one of the most famous traditional medicinal plants in Eastern China. Here, we report a chromosome-level genome assembly of C. salicifolius, comprising 820.1 Mb of genomic sequence with contig N50 value up to 2.2 Mb and containing 36,651 annotated protein-coding genes. The data obtained in this study not only provide a representative genome sequence from the magnoliids but also open the door to functional genomic research and molecular breeding of C. salicifolius.
