Project funding

This work was supported through the Canadium Triticum Advancement through Genomics program.


Sequence reads representing 68x (6DS) and 76x (6DL) coverage of short and long arms of chromosome 6D were generated from flow sorted DNA prepared by IEB, Czech Republic using paired end 100base sequencing on the Illumina GAIIx platform. The reads were assembled with ABySS at TGAC and form part of the IWGSC CSS data.
