Background and Objective: The SWEET (Sugars Will Eventually be Exported Transporter) proteins play important roles in modulating the growth and development processes in plants. However, little information is available on the SWEET family in sugar beet (Beta vulgaris). The objectives of this present study were to genome-wide identify and characterize the BvSWEET family in sugar beet. Materials and Methods: Based on the available genome, proteome and transcriptome databases of sugar beet, various computational tools have been used to analyze the nucleotide and full-length protein sequences of members of the BvSWEET family. Results: A total of 16 members of the BvSWEET family has been identified in sugar beet at the genome-wide scale. Structural analysis indicated that the BvSWEET family exhibited variable characteristics. Furthermore, the BvSWEET family in sugar beet could be categorized into four distinct groups like in other plant species. Of our interest, we found that some BvSWEET genes exhibited strongly preferential expression in major organs/tissues under adverse environmental stimuli. Conclusion: The results provided a comprehensive foundation for further functional characterization of the BvSWEET gene family.
