IWGSC workshop at PAG Asia 2019

08 June 2019 - Plant and Animal Genome Conference Asia, Shenzhen, China

The reference genome now provides a template to integrate the outputs from the many wheat genome sequences and functional gene studies/projects on-going globally. The workshop will examine advances in functional annotation of regions in the reference genome sequence not covered in the January workshop in San Diego and will include gap closure as well as the functional annotation of the gene space. Generally, the agronomically important regions in controlling grain attributes and responses to environmental changes will be targeted in the context of translating research findings to applied outcomes such as application in breeding. In addition, the workshop will seek to identify studies utilizing model systems such as Arabidopsis and rice to add value to understanding genes in wheat. Validating changes to the annotation of new gene models especially in relation to regular updates of genome coordinates to EnsemblPlant, as details of gene families in the assembly are completed, will be considered.
