Abstract

The project aims at producing a whole genome assembly of bread wheat, T. aestivum cv Chinese Spring based on Illumina short sequence reads assembled with NRGene’s DeNovoMAGICTM software.

Data Access

Assembly data are available at the URGI IWGSC repository . See the announcement for details on how to access the data.
