Wheat Mapping Populations

It was decided at the IWGSC Coordinating Committee meeting in September, 2009, at Clermont-Ferrand, France, to compile a list of available wheat mapping populations as a resource for anchoring physical maps and for wheat researchers in general. As of February 10, 2010, the international wheat community contributed information on 55 mapping populations representing the various market classes and ploidy levels of wheat. The set includes 40 recombinant inbred and 14 doubled haploid populations along with one association mapping panel.

The Hordeum Toolbox (THT)

THT was created for the Barley CAP project, to hold SNP genotyping and phenotype data for association mapping in elite barley breeding lines. The database and web interface were created by Julie Dickerson of Iowa State University, and are now running at GrainGenes for long-term maintenance.
