Inulin is an important reserve polysaccharide in Asteraceae plants, and is also widely used as sweetener, dietary fiber, and prebiotics. Nevertheless, lack of genomic resources for inulin-producing plants hinders extensive studies on inulin metabolism and regulation. Here, we present chromosome-level reference genomes for four inulin-producing plants: chicory (Cichorium intybus), endive (Cichorium endivia), great burdock (Arctium lappa) and yacon (Smallanthus sonchifolius), with assembled genome size 1.
