All IWGSC reference sequence resources now publicly available

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.

You can reach the Science article for the assembly here.

The following resources are now publicly available, without registration, at the IWGSC Data Repository hosted by URGI-INRA:

IWGSC RefSeq assembly v1.0
IWGSC RefSeq annotation v1.0 including structural annotation (genes, transposable elements, ncRNAs), functional annotation, varietal SNPs, RH maps, GBS maps, optical maps
IWGSC RefSeq annotation v1.1 including genes and RNAseq mapping
Physical maps for all chromosomes
MTP BAC WGPTM sequence tags for all chromosomes, except 3B
BLAST , JBrowse and InterMine tools are available in open access to query and browse all these data.
We are also pleased to announce that IWGSC RefSeq v1.0 and IWGSC RefSeq annotation v1.0 have been incorporated into Ensembl Plants and will be available in their upcoming release.

The IWGSC data have also been incorporated into GrainGenes, where varietal SNP tracks generated and aligned by the Akhunov and Dubcovsky labs are available.

While scientists may freely publish using the IWGSC data, we do request that the source of the data be properly acknowledged.
