Brassica rapa subsp. pekinensis (Napa cabbage) is a widely cultivated vegetable that has broad green leaves with white petioles that are tightly wrapped in a cylindrical formation. The species B. rapa is used for studies into plant morphological plasticity, crop domestication and directed selection. It is also of interest due to its complex evolutionary history which includes a whole-genome triplication event between 13 and 17 million years ago.

The assembled draft genome of B. rapa subsp. pekinensis is 283.8 Mb, approximately covering more than 98% of the genome. Genetic mapping has been used to produce ten pseudo chromosomes from 90% of the assembly. Comparisons with the closely related diploid Arabidopsis thaliana, suggest that morphological plasticity within B. rapa may be the result of variation in the loss of triplicated genome segments and its large genome size could be due to transposable elements that occupy 39.5% of the genome.
