Pushing ahead with gene editing - The Around Farm Progress podcast digs into the latest plant breeding tools
Data from the reference sequence of the Turkish elite cultivar Sonmez generated by Hikmet Budak, Ani Akpinar, Sezgi Bıyıklıoğlu, and Valérie Barbe (Montana BioAg.Inc, USA and Genoscope, France) are now available to download at URGI in open access.
The IWGSC has led the effort to develop a high quality, reference sequence of the large, complex (hexaploid), bread wheat genome: IWGSC RefSeq v1.0 and most recently IWGSC RefSeq v2.1 and annotation v2.1. This year's workshop will include presentations highlighting advances that have been made possible by the completion of the reference sequence and other genomic resources for wheat.
2021 was another year impacted by disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, limiting our ability to travel and connect at meetings. Nevertheless, we were able to make progress in some of our activities and projects, providing more genomic tools and resources for the community.
IWGSC founding member Rudi Appels has been awarded the 2021 Farrer Memorial Medal for his extensive work in wheat genome research.
IWGSC sponsors Curio Genomics and Daicel Arbor Biosciences announced the launch of the cloud-based bioinformatics platform myCurio™, resulting from their multi-year product development and marketing partnership.
Our webinar series continues in 2022 with an exciting line-up of talks and speakers.
The International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC) is pleased to announce that the bioinformatics company Curio Genomics has joined the organization as a sponsoring partner.
The IWGSC has led the effort to develop a high quality, reference sequence of the large, complex (hexaploid), bread wheat genome: IWGSC RefSeq v1.0 and most recently IWGSC RefSeq v2.1 and annotation v2.1. This year's workshop will include presentations highlighting some of the significant advances in wheat genomics. As usual, the workshop also includes the IWGSC Early Career Award and travel stipend recipient with this year’s talk which is given to a young scientist nominated by anyone in the wheat community and selected by the IWGSC leadership in recognition of outstanding achievement.
