IWGSC technical workshop at PAG 2022

IWGSC From Structural to Functional Wheat Genomics Workshop at PAG 2022

The workshop will examine advances in structural and functional genomics, wheat genomic resources, and manual and functional annotation of the IWGSC reference genome sequence (IWGSC RefSeq v2.1). The IWGSC phase II strategy, post the release of the wheat reference genome,includes developing a pipeline for community generated manual and functional annotation, as well as periodic annotation releases by the IWGSC.
