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.
