The IWGSC held a scientific workshop at PAG 2014. The latest results from two major IWGSC projects were presented and talks describing the use of consortium resources. In addition to IWGSC projects, presentations regarding technologies or resources developed outside of the consortium were presented. These included sequencing projects of species closely related to wheat or progenitors as well as technologies that may be of use to wheat genome sequencing or the application of genomic tools/resources. The workshop included a talk by an early career award recipient. This award given to a young scientist nominated by anyone in the wheat community and selected by the IWGSC leadership.

IWGSC Workshop at ITMI scheduled

Published: 07/11/2011 11:52 am

The IWGSC will hold a workshop on 4 September 2011 in Mexico City, Mexico, in conjunction with the International Triticeae Mapping Initiative (ITMI) workshop. The IWGSC workshop will be held from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm (with a break for lunch) in the Sala Murillo room at the Hotel Sevilla, Mexico City, Mexico. Project leaders and team members of the IWGSC physical mapping, survey sequencing, and MTP sequencing project will present the status and results of their projects. We hope to accommodate all of the project leaders as well as early career speakers. While the IWGSC workshop is free and open to everyone, we request that you register for the IWGSC workshop along with your ITMI registration. You may register for the IWGSC preconference workshop or ITMI at this website .

Physical mapping standard protocol workshop

Published: 04/16/2010 04:04 pm

On 12 January 2010, the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC) organized a workshop to develop and discuss protocols and standards for the physical mapping of the hexaploid wheat genome and develop a consensus. In addition, the workshop surveyed the sequencing efforts undertaken within the consortium to coordinate the studies carried out in member laboratories. The goal was to ensure homogeneity in the procedures used for constructing the wheat physical maps by providing guidelines developed in expert laboratories and distributing these to the groups participating in the physical mapping and sequencing of bread wheat chromosomes under the auspice of the IWGSC.A workshop report can be found in the Annual Wheat Newsletter 2010 (Vol 56) at http://wheat.pw.usda.gov/ggpages/awn/56/TEXTFILES/IWGSC.pdf
