PAG Asia program

The IWGSC will hold a workshop entitled "Wheat Genomics in Agriculture: Building on IWGSC RefSeq v1.0" at the Plant and Animal Genome Conference Asia in Seoul, South Korea (30 May - 1 June 2018) on Wednesday 30 May 2018 from 2:00pm to 3:45pm

The workshop is organized by Rudi Appels and Kellye Eversole

Technological breakthroughs have enabled the bread wheat genome – for a long time considered intractable due to its size (more than 5x the size of the human genome) and high repeat content – to be assembled by a number of groups employing a variety of approaches. The availability of multiple assemblies of the same genome, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, presents a challenge for end users. The IWGSC RefSeq v1.0 genome assembly now provides a point of reference for deciphering the wheat genotype-phenotype interface in agriculture and to continue the process of adapting wheat to a changing agricultural environment. In this workshop we cover issues in genome assembly that are still outstanding, the interpretation of the transcriptome with special reference to tissue-specific expression of homoeologous genes, and presentations of case studies in wheat development.
