Science cover

On 18 July 2014, the IWGSC published in the international journal Science a draft sequence of the bread wheat genome. The chromosome-based draft provides new insight into the structure, organization, and evolution of the large, complex genome of the world’s most widely grown cereal crop.

In January 2016, the IWGSC awarded three Outstanding Leadership Awards.

Jan Dvorak and Ming-Cheng Luo were both awarded an IWGSC Outstanding Leadership Award in recognition and appreciation of their leadership in completing the reference sequence for the Ae. tauschii – the progenitor of wheat D genome.

John Jacobs and Bayer CropScience (BSC) were awarded an IWGSC Outstanding Leadership Award in recognition and appreciation of their leadership for advancing significantly the IWGSC efforts to complete the reference sequence of the bread wheat genome.
