Applied Triticeae Genomics

This workshop in the field of applied Triticeae genomics will help coordinate and showcase a new area of research in crop genetics. This is based on the emergence of barley genome sequence, rye genome sequence, and the sequences of wheat including hexaploid, tetraploid, and progenitor species. Research in the area of applied Triticeae genomics includes: • devising methods for functional genomics based on available genome sequence resources (TILLING, accessing natural variation); • large-scale re-sequencing of Triticeae species for marker development and to access the epigenomes of Triticeae; • comparative gene expression to study how polyploidy influences homoeolog expression; • providing the technical and bioinformatics foundations for high resolution mapping of genes underlying QTL; • implementing GWAS studies in Triticeae, including coordinating international activities; • network analyses based on gene co-expression to identify if core nodes are altered by polyploidy, across species, and by domestication; • Gene dynamics- gene death and gene birth; • Database and bioinformatics development.
