  1. The starch biosynthesis pathway of cassava here is comprised of 270 cassava protein sequences annotated by their orthologues in the five template plants, Arabidopsis, maize, rice, castor bean and potato. Among the annotated sequences, 141 proteins were found to be involved in the sucrose and starch synthesis sub-pathway and the remaining 129 proteins were related to the Calvin cycle sub-pathway.
