Program of IWGSC workshop at PAG 2018

Published: 11/29/2017 06:03 pm

The IWGSC scientific workshop at PAG 2018 took place on Saturday 13 January 2018 from 8:00 to 10:10 am. The workshop included a presentation of first high quality, annotated reference genome of bread wheat, IWGSC RefSeq. The 21 pseudomolecules include a significant number of anchored markers providing a direct link between reference and important agronomic traits. With RefSeq available to scientists over the past 18 months, significant advances have been made. The workshop included talks that highlight some of these. We also heard a talk that describes the worldwide phylogeography and history of genetic diversity of wheat, a precursor work to developing a pan-genome. As usual, the workshop also included a talk by an IWGSC Early Career Award recipient. This is given to a young scientist nominated by anyone in the wheat community and selected by the IWGSC leadership as recognition of outstanding achievement.
