International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC)

The IWGSC is leading the effort to develop a reference sequence of the large (17Gb), complex (hexaploid), bread wheat genome. The latest results from two major IWGSC projects will be presented and talks describing the use of consortium resources. In addition to IWGSC projects, presentations regarding technologies or resources developed outside of the consortium will be presented. These will include sequencing projects of species closely related to wheat or progenitors as well as technologies that may be of use to wheat genome sequencing or the application of genomic tools/resources. The workshop will include a talk by an early career award recipient. This is given to a young scientist nominated by anyone in the wheat community and selected by the IWGSC leadership.
