PAG 2015

10-14 January 2015 - Plant and Animal Genome Conference, San Diego, CA, USA

The IWGSC organized two workshops and a business meeting at PAG 2015.

IWGSC workshop at PAG 2015

The IWGSC scientific workshop at PAG 2015 took place on Saturday 10 January from 8:00 to 10:10 am in room Town and Country. The workshop included an update on the Ae. tauschii sequencing project, exome sequencing of wheat mutant populations, and 3 talks describing the generation or use of wheat genomic resources that were selected from submitted abstracts. Finally, the workshop included a talk by an early career award recipient. This is given to a young scientist nominated by anyone in the wheat community and selected by the IWGSC leadership.
