Cryptomeria japonica information
Description

Cryptomeria japonica (Sugi) is an endemic conifer in Japan and is widely grown due to their rapid growth and high wood quality. It belongs to Cupressaceae sensu lato (s.l.). It has 11 pairs of chromosomes, unlike most species in the Pinaceae, which have 12 pairs (or, rarely, 11 or 13) of chromosomes. The estimated C-values is ~10100 Mbp (Hizume et al. 2001); approximately half the mean genome size of Pinaceae species (22470Mbp) (Leitch et al. 2001). C. japonica is a monoecious species, and the allergic reactions caused by its pollen have become a serious public-health problem in Japan.
