Determining the haplotypes within plants is of great value for breeders as it can aid in a variety of goals such as providing insight into genetically linked variants and reconstruction of pedigrees. The availability of this long-range information can improve the prediction of recombination, thereby allowing better selection of specific varieties for breeding. With the continuing increase in sequencing throughput and quality, it becomes economically feasible to not only assemble genomes but also to phase them into haplotypes.
