DOE researchers develop method to quickly map out plant genomes

April 16, 2015 |

In California, through a combination of high-throughput sequencing, high performance computing, and genetic mapping, DOE JGI researchers have derived a sequence assembly for the highly repetitive plant genome of bread wheat (Triticum aestivum). The researchers pointed out that the strategy they developed and applied to the polyploidy species bread wheat is also applicable to any species, […]
