PAG Asia Announcement

The IWGSC will hold a workshop at the Plant and Animal Genome Conference Asia in Seoul, South Korea (29-31 May 2017) on Wednesday 31 May 2017 from 11:15am to 1:00 pm.

The workshop is organized by Rudi Appels and Kellye Eversole

The release of a new high quality draft genome sequence of the reference wheat genome (var Chinese Spring) in 2017 is providing new opportunities to fully characterize this complex genome. This year's workshop show-cases the depth of community engagement in validating and refining genome analyses with a particular focus on the transcriptome and network studies based on both gene pathways and small non-coding RNAs. The workshop will also report on the analysis of the recently completed durum gnome assembly and the isolation of a new rust resistance gene.
