IWGSC workshop at PAG Asia 2022

IWGSC workshop at PAG Asia 2022

The IWGSC has led the effort to develop a high quality, reference sequence of the large, complex (hexaploid), bread wheat genome: IWGSC RefSeq v1.0 and most recently IWGSC RefSeq v2.1 and annotation v2.1. This year's workshop will include presentations highlighting advances that have been made possible by the completion of the reference sequence and other genomic resources for wheat.
