Funding for the BAC library and Whole Genome Profile (WGPTM) tags was provided by the BBSRC. Funding for completing the physical map has been provided by Bayer CropScience under the BCS-IWGSC project .
Under the BBSRC project, the BAC library and the first assembly of the Whole Genome Profile (WGPTM) tags were completed for chromosome 2D of bread wheat cv. Chinese Spring. A second assembly was performed by reassembling the WGPTM tags with the latest version of LTC software and the minimum tiling path (MTP) designed for sequencing under the BCS-IWGSC project .
