A Database for Triticeae and Avena
During the U.S. government shutdown, we will NOT maintain or update GrainGenes (including wheat.pw.usda.gov, probe.pw.usda.gov, and graingenes.org), or respond to queries. The sites will remain open, but some links may be broken, or the site may become unavailable due to technical issues. The GrainGenes e-mail list will not be available. GrainGenes will not tweet or post on Facebook.
We will resume our services as soon as possible once funding for the U.S. government has been restored.
Steven Salzberg's group at Johns Hopkins published "the first near-complete assembly of the hexaploid bread wheat genome, Triticum aestivum" in the journal Gigascience. The link to the paper at the journal site can be found at https://doi.org/10.1093/gigascience/gix097.
The National Science Foundation-funded NSF-IOS-1238231 project has released unmasked pseudomolecules (v1.0) of T. aestivum Chinese Spring (CS). They are available for BLAST searches at the project website ( http://aegilops.wheat.ucdavis.edu/ATGSP/). The BLAST input portal is at the DATA page link at this URL. (The download function is still under construction.) Successful searches will return alignments including coordinates of the target sequences on the pseudomolecules.
Aegilops tauschii is the wild species that contributed the D genome to bread wheat and this National Science Foundation-funded project has released the reference sequence of its genome. Masked and unmasked pseudomolecules of Ae. tauschii acc. AL8/78 and a database of complete transposable elements annotated in the Ae. tauschii genome are available for BLAST and JBrowse searches at the project website (http://aegilops.wheat.ucdavis.edu/ATGSP/). The BLAST input portal is at the DATA page link at this website.
The International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium is pleased to announce that the first version of the reference sequence of the bread wheat variety Chinese Spring (IWGSC RefSeq v1.0) is now available with annotation of genes, non-coding RNAs and transposable elements at the IWGSC sequence repository hosted by URGI-INRA .
