Title454 pyrosequencing of the Triticum aestivum (bread wheat) genome to 5X coverage
Study TypeWhole Genome Sequencing
Abstract Bread wheat has a hexaploid genome with a size of approximately 17GB, making it one of the largest and most complex plant genomes. Wheat is of fundamental importance to world agriculture with an estimated 2007 harvest of ~550m tonnes. In this project we have taken a whole genome shotgun sequencing a .. [more]
Description The data set represents one of the outputs of the BBSRC funded grant “Mining the allohexaploid wheat genome for useful sequence polymorphisms”. The grant is led by Prof. Keith Edwards (University of Bristol) and is a collaboration between Prof. Neil Hall and Dr. Anthony Hall (University of Liverpool .. [more]
