Aegilops tauschii reference genome sequence now available for BLAST on the NSF-IOS-1238231 Project site

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 ( The BLAST input portal is at the DATA page link at this website.

IWGSC Reference Sequence v1.0 Annotation NOW available at URGI

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 .

Pre-publication access to barley RefSeq v1.0

As a service to the Triticeae research community, the International Barley genome Sequencing Consortium (IBSC) is providing pre-publication access to a physical map-minimum tiling path based reference sequence (RefSeq v.1.0) assembly of the spring barley reference genotype 'Morex'. IBSC is in the process of preparing to publish the data within this year.
