Radiation Hybrid-Based Physical Maps

Under the leadership of coordinating committee member Shahryar Kianian, efforts are underway to establish high-resolution radiation hybrid-based physical maps of the D-genome of bread wheat and of the Ae. tauschii genome, the progenitor of the D-genome of bread wheat.

Construction of high-resolution radiation hybrid based physical maps of wheat D-genome

Project Leader: Kianian Shahryar
Complete sequencing of large and complex genomes of many crop plants such as wheat and other cereals provide a daunting challenge to the genomics community. We have devised a simple and elegant method of developing a high-resolution radiation hybr...
