Edited by Rudy Appels, Kellye Eversole, Catherine Feuillet and Dusti Gallagher, the Wheat Genome book highlights the groundbreaking research ongoing for wheat – a critical food security crop. It illustrates the value and impact of having high-quality reference genomes for overall crop improvements that address the dual challenges of producing a reliable, safe, and sustainable supply of wheat while facing a rapidly changing climate.

The book includes articles describing the development of the reference sequence, new assemblies of commercial varieties, genome-wide studies, and the accelerated cloning of agronomically important genes and provides valuable resources and literature for fundamental and applied research, crop improvement and teaching.
