Program of IWGSC workshop at PAG 2016

The IWGSC scientific workshop at PAG 2016 took place on Saturday 9 January 2016 from 8:00 to 10:10 am. The workshop included a talk on the IWGSC whole genome sequencing project and other talks on the generation or use of wheat genomic resources. As usual, the workshop also included a talk by an early career award recipient. This award is given to a young scientist nominated by anyone in the wheat community and selected by the IWGSC leadership.
