Program of IWGSC Standards & Protocols workshop at PAG 2016

The IWGSC Standards and Protocols workshop at PAG 2016 took place on Tuesday 12 January 2016 from 1:30 to 6:10 pm. The workshop focused on the assembly and quality control of BAC-based chromosome pseudomolecules and the integration of multiple map and sequence-based resources to produce the bread wheat genome reference sequence.
