Next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies have greatly reduce the cost and difficulty of sequencing partial genomes. Genome datasets are a promising approach to generate genomic resources to further support population genomic and association genetic studies. In a recent study da Rocha Perini et al. describe the complete chloroplast genome of the endangered Cattleya crispata, the first genome from the Neotropical orchid subtribe Laeliinae. The development of genomic resources of Cattleya species adds to the genomic toolbox for conservation genetics and allows new approaches to better understand the complex evolutionary history of Neotropical orchid species.
