IWGSC Newsletter – September 2019 to 09 January 2020

Publication date: 01/10/2020

IWGSC Newsletter 3/2019
IWGSC newsletter No3/2019

The IWGSC

  • Membership: The IWGSC has 2,800 members in 70 countries, working at 828 institutions/companies.
  • Sponsors:
    • Currently, the IWGSC has 8 sponsors .
    • Read the sponsor highlight on the Kansas Wheat Commission, a founding member and continuous supporter of the IWGSC since 2005.
    • Sponsor support is essential to ensure continuation of activities. Please inform us if you know of any potential sponsors (research institutes, universities, governmental agencies, or companies).

Projects

  • IWGSC Wheat Diversity project: the aim is to characterize the breadth of worldwide wheat diversity.
    In this project, the genomes of eight to twelve landraces, representing the full breadth of genetic diversity in wheat (as described by Balfourier, et al. ), will be sequenced at high quality. These, in conjunction with the IWGSC RefSeq v1.0 and v2.0, will serve as the foundation for the diversity panel and haplotype map. Lower quality genome sequences of other landraces and elite lines will be added as available. Efforts to secure funding is ongoing.
  • IWGSC Exome Array project
    On 4 October 2019, Arbor Biosciences announced the official release of the myBaits® Expert Wheat Exome capture panel developed in collaboration with the IWGSC. The panel was designed using the reference genome for bread wheat cv. Chinese Spring, IWGSC RefSeq v1.0, which was fully annotated and published by IWGSC members. The panel utilizes over two million probes to cover 200 megabases of high confidence exons in the genome and is compatible with both hexaploid and tetraploid cultivars of wheat.
  • IWGSC Promoter Capture project
    The IWGSC is working on the design for an IWGSC-Arbor Biosciences promoter capture under the leadership of IWGSC Coordinating Committee member, Jorge Dubcovsky. Stay tuned for information.
  • IWGSC RefSeqv2.0
    An improved version of the reference wheat genome, completed under the leadership of Coordinating Committee members Mingcheng Luo and Jan Dvorak, is available at the IWGSC data repository hosted by URGI-INRA under Toronto protocol.
  • IWGSC RefSeq Annotation v2.0
    Targeted annotation of IWGSC RefSeq v2.0 is currently under way. Continued manual and functional annotation of the reference is essential. To facilitate high quality functional annotation, we continue to seek experts willing to take the lead in the functional annotation of gene families in wheat, contact Kellye Eversole and Fred Choulet if you would like to be involved.

Data Repository at URGI

  • The IWGSC RefSeq v2.0 assembly is available for download and BLAST . The data are being released in advance of publication to the scientific community under the terms of Toronto agreement which affords the data producers the right to publish the first whole genome analyses of the data.
  • How to access the data: Access does require registration. For specific access terms, see the IWGSC General Data Access agreement .
    • Individuals who have not signed the IWGSC Data Access Agreement should FIRST register on the IWGSC website and sign the Agreement ; URGI login details will be provided subsequently for access to the data.
    • Individuals who have already signed the IWGSC Data Access Agreement can go directly to the URGI website to access the data using their URGI login details. If you have forgotten your URGI credentials, please send an email to urgi-support@inra.fr .
