Keygene worked with scientists at the Centre for BioSystems Genomics (CBSG), the Dutch National Center for plant genomics research, and constructed the physical map using its proprietary whole genome profiling technology.

The International SOL Consortium is producing a high-coverage shotgun sequence of the tomato genome using the GS FLX Titanium (Roche) and SOLiD (Life Technologies) sequencing platforms and Keygene's map will be used as a scaffold for developing the draft genome sequence. A superior draft sequence of the tomato genome is expected to be produced by the end of this year.
