Wild castor grows in the high-altitude tropical desert of the African Plateau, a region known for high ultraviolet radiations, strong lights and extremely dry conditions. To investigate the potential genetic basis of adaptation to both highland and tropical deserts, we generated a chromosome-level genome sequence of the wild castor accession WT05, with genome size of 316 Mb and scaffold and contig N50 sizes of 31.93 Mb and 8.96 Mb, respectively.
