Shifting the limits in wheat research and breeding using a fully annotated reference genome


Appels, Rudi; Eversole, Kellye; Feuillet, Catherine; et al; Keller, Beat; Singh, K; Chhuneja, P; Gupta, O P; Jindal, S; Kaur, P; Malik, P; Sharma, P; Yadav, Bharat (2018). Shifting the limits in wheat research and breeding using a fully annotated reference genome. Science, 361(6403):eaar7191.

Abstract

Insights from the annotated wheat genome
Wheat is one of the major sources of food for much of the world. However, because bread wheat's genome is a large hybrid mix of three separate subgenomes, it has been difficult to produce a high-quality reference sequence. Using recent advances in sequencing, the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium presents an annotated reference genome with a detailed analysis of gene content among subgenomes and the structural organization for all the chromosomes. Examples of quantitative trait mapping and CRISPR-based genome modification show the potential for using this genome in agricultural research and breeding. Ramírez-González et al. exploited the fruits of this endeavor to identify tissue-specific biased gene expression and coexpression networks during development and exposure to stress. These resources will accelerate our understanding of the genetic basis of bread wheat.
