Small cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum (L.) Maton, also known as the ‘Queen of Spices’ is a rhizomatous herbaceous monocot from the family Zingiberaceae. In the present study, using HiSeq™ 2000 RNA sequencing technology, transcriptome sequencing was performed for both control and disease stressed small cardamom leaf tissues. RNA-seq generated 46,931,637 (101 base) and 31,682,496 (101 base) raw reads and totally 9.93GB and 6.63GB of sequence data for cardamom control and stressed samples respectively. The raw data were submitted to NCBI SRA database of under the accession numbers SRX2512359 and SRX2512358 for the control and diseased samples respectively. The raw reads were quality filtered and assembled using TRINITY de novo assembler which created 1,11,495 (control) and 91,096 (diseased) contigs with N50 values 3013 (control) and 2729 (stressed). The data was further used to identify significantly differentially expressed unigenes between control and stressed samples. Assembled unigenes were further annotated and evaluated in silico to predict the function using publicly available databases and gene annotation tools.
