Program of IWGSC workshop at PAG 2017

The IWGSC scientific workshop at PAG 2017 took place on Saturday 14 January 2017 from 8:00 to 10:10 am. The workshop included a presentation of IWGSC v1.0 reference genome of bread wheat. As usual, the workshop also included a talk by an early career award recipient. This is given to a young scientist nominated by anyone in the wheat community and selected by the IWGSC leadership.
