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. This year's workshop will include an update on the Ae. tauschii sequencing project, exome sequencing of wheat mutant populations, and 3 talks describing the generation or use of wheat genomic resources that were selected from submitted abstracts. Finally, 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.
