Onion is an important vegetable crop consumed throughout the world. It has been used extensively in the past for cytogenetic studies but molecular analysis has been lacking primarily due to its large heterozygous genome, biennial habit and strong inbreeding depression. The cultivated variety of onion (Allium Cepa) has a genome of about 15000 Mb distributed over 8 large chromosomes. There is currently no plan to sequence its genome.

Detailed information about the Genetic maps available for onion can be found at the BioProjects website.
