Solanum lycopersicum (tomato) is the second most important vegetable crop after the closely related potato (Solanum tuberosum) and is cultivated in over 140 different countries. The species originated in South America, where a number of wild relatives can be found. It is a perennial, though as a crop plant is often grown as an annual.

Solanum lycopersicum is particularly studied as a model organism for fruit development.

The tomato reference proteome is derived from the genome for the inbred cultivar Heinz 1706, which was sequenced by the Tomato Genome Consortium and published in 2012. The tomato genome has a haploid chromosome number of 12, containing 900 Mb and 35,000 protein-coding genes.
