Applied Triticeae Genomics

This workshop in the field of applied Triticeae genomics aims to promote applied research in the Triticeae that uses newly emerging genome sequences and genetic resources of this interesting and important group of plants. Currently technical barriers to exploiting current genomic resources remain high due to the sizes and complexities of Triticeae genomes. Therefore major improvements in genome sequence quality, the development of genetic and functional genomic resources, and creating and applying novel approaches to gene identification and genetic analyses are a high priority. This workshop aims to identify and communicate these advances. The workshop also aims to promote research in the Triticeae, therefore early-stage career scientists are most welcome to talk about their latest work.
