Bayer maps oilseed rape genome

Bayer CropScience and its collaborators have sequenced the entire genome of oilseed rape ( Brassica napus) and its constituent genomes in Brapa and Boleracea. The respective sequences have immediate application such as gene copy identification and isolation for use in its genetically modified and non-GM trait developments, the company notes. They also allow rapid and precise chromosome positioning of GM trait events. The sequencing project was a collaboration involving Chinese plant breeding research organisation Beijing Genomics Institute (Shenzhen), the Dutch plant research company, Keygene (Wageningen), and the Australian University of Queensland (Brisbane).
