Project funding

This project was funded by the US National Science Foundation.


Funding for the physical maps of bread wheat cv. Chinese Spring chromosomes 1D, 4D, and 6D is included in the IWGSC project, led by Jan Dvorak, that is aimed at completing the physical map of Aegilops tauschii, the D-genome progenitor of bread wheat. Bikram Gill is leading the effort to complete physical maps for three chromosomes from bread wheat. Fluorescent fingerprints obtained from BAC libraries constructed from chromosomes 1D, 4D and 6D (see CNRGV page ) separated as a single flow-sorted fraction were assembled initially using FPC. Fingerprint assemblies were refined subsequently with LTC by Z. Frenkel. BAC contigs have been allocated to individual chromosomes using comparisons to A. tauschii and tag sequence data as they have become available.
