A Database for Triticeae and Avena
The International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium is pleased to announce that all data related to the reference sequence of bread wheat, IWGSC RefSeq v1.0, are available without restriction.
The following resources are now publicly available, without registration, at the IWGSC Data Repository hosted by URGI-INRA:
Researchers at Kansas State University and Cornell University have developed and released an Android application called “Verify” that will help plant breeders by decreasing the amount of time and energy it takes to manage samples and seed stocks. Verify makes integrating and utilizing barcodes a simple process by combining an intuitive interface with a new barcode processing library.
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.
