<div><p>Garden asparagus (<i>Asparagus officinalis</i> L.) is a popular vegetable cultivated worldwide. The secondary metabolites in its shoot are helpful for human health. We analyzed <i>A</i>. <i>officinalis</i> transcriptomes and identified differentially expressed genes (DEGs) involved in the biosynthesis of rutin and protodioscin, which are health-promoting functional compounds, and determined their association with stem color. We sequenced the complete mRNA transcriptome using the Illumina high-throughput sequencing platform in one white, three green, and one purple asparagus cultivars. A gene set was generated by <i>de novo</i> assembly of the transcripto...
