First steps towards a wheat genome sequence

A significant stride towards a fully annotated map of the wheat genome has been achieved by a team of researchers from the UK’s Liverpool and Bristol Universities and the John Innes Centre (Norwich). They have published five read-throughs of the 16,000 megabase (Mb) pair wheat genome covering 95% of all wheat genes. The data are not the equivalent of draft or finished genome sequences already published for other crops. However, it is an important step towards producing a complete, annotated genome sequence, the researchers say.
