The International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC)

  1. 1. International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium http://www.wheatgenome.orgIn 2005, the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC) was created to facilitate andcoordinate an international initiative to accelerate wheat improvement by delivering to breeders and scientistsa high quality gold standard reference genome sequence of bread wheat that is anchored to the genetic maps.IWGSC projects related specifically to the hexaploid, bread wheat genome, cv. Chinese Spring, fall within twobroad categories: physical mapping (i.e., construction of chromosome based physical maps anchored to thegenetic maps) and sequencing. The IWGSC also has coordinated the completion of the physical map of the D-genome progenitor, Ae. tauschii. Combined strategies to establish a Bread Wheat Chromosomes: wheat reference genome sequence Funding Status and Completion IWGSC Project Results Bread Wheat Physical Mapping Chromosome-specific Ae. tauschii BAC libraries Physical Map Bread Wheat Survey Sequencing Bread Wheat MTP Sequencing 2,274,816 BAC clones
