Flax (Linum usitatissimum) is also known as linseed. It is an ancient crop that is widely cultivated as a source of ﬁber, oil and medicinally relevant compounds. DNA form the flax was collected in not recorded. We sequenced the unknownGb genome to a depth of approximately 69X with short reads from a series of libraries with various insert sizes ( 300bp, 500bp, 2kb, 5kb and 10kb). The assembled scaffolds of high quality sequences total 25.9G, with the contig and scaffold N50 values of 20.1k and 0.7M respectively. We identified 43484 protein-coding genes with an mean length of kb.
