Projects progress overview

The vision of the IWGSC is to establish a high quality reference sequence of the wheat genome anchored to the genetic/phenotypic maps. This will provide high resolution links between wheat traits and variations and the associated sequence features (i.e., genes, regulatory motifs, intergenic regions etc) and polymorphisms (Single Nucleotide Variants (SNPs), Structural Variations (SV)). To achieve this vision and ensure the rapid delivery of tools to breeders along the way, the IWGSC identifies short-term and long-term strategic goals. The overall long term goal is to produce a physical map-based sequence of the hexaploid, bread wheat genome, cv. Chinese Spring. To achieve this aim the IWGSC has coordinated and endorsed projects delivering BAC-based physical maps anchored to genetic maps for each of the chromosomes. The focus is now on projects that generate chromosome sequences from minimal tile paths (MTP) of clones defined by the physical maps. The IWGSC has also supported the delivery of an intermediate chromosome-based survey sequence of the bread wheat genome the completion of the Ae. tauschii physical map and the establishment of high-resolution radiation hybrid physical maps to facilitate ordering of the chromosome sequences.
