PAG 2014

11-15 January 2014 - Plant and Animal Genome Conference, San Diego, CA, USA

The IWGSC organized two workshops at PAG 2014.

IWGSC workshop at PAG 2014

The IWGSC scientific workshop at PAG 2014 took place on Saturday Saturday 11 January from 8:00 to 10:10 am. The latest results from two major IWGSC projects were presented and talks describing the use of consortium resources. In addition to IWGSC projects, presentations regarding technologies or resources developed outside of the consortium were presented. These included sequencing projects of species closely related to wheat or progenitors as well as technologies that may be of use to wheat genome sequencing or the application of genomic tools/resources. The workshop included a talk by an early career award recipient. This award given to a young scientist nominated by anyone in the wheat community and selected by the IWGSC leadership.

Organizers: Kellye Eversole and Beat Keller
