PAG Asia 2016

The IWGSC organized one workshop at PAG Asia 2016.

The IWGSC has led the effort to develop a reference sequence of the large (17Gb), complex (hexaploid), bread wheat genome and the workshop continues the well-established practise of presentations and discussions of chromosome-based and whole genome projects. In addition the workshop includes presentations of new technologies or resources from sequencing projects dealing with species closely related to wheat or progenitors as well as technologies that may be of use to wheat genome sequencing or the application of genomic tools/resources. This workshop aims to highlight the advances made in sequencing and analysing the complex genome of wheat and the opportunities that are emerging for wheat improvement.
