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.

  • Wanted: $13 million to unlock the wheat genome Agri-Pulse, an organisation that provides coverage on the politics and players driving agricultural and rural policy, published an article about the IWGSC efforts to sequence the wheat genome.
  • Bayer Crop Science Presentation, Ghent, 12 February 2015 Kellye Eversole, IWGSC Executive Director, presented the IWGSC strategy to obtain a high quality reference sequence and provided an update on the latest results in a seminar she gave at Bayer Crop Science.
  • Keygene presentation, Wageningen, 6 February 2015 Members of the leadership teams of IWGSC and Keygene met to discuss future efforts for securing the remaining funding for obtaining the high quality sequence.
  • PAG Pictures IWGSC kicked off its 10-year anniversary with workshops, celebrations, and awards at the Plant & Animal Genome Conference XXIII (PAG).Check out the pictures here on Flickr.
