Cold Spring Harbor Lab to Get Ryegrass Sequence Data

NEW YORK, July 7 (GenomeWeb News) –  ViaLactia Biosciences and Orion Genomics will provide ryegrass sequence data to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory researchers, the companies said in a statement yesterday.

The sequence data was produced in a three-year-old research alliance between ViaLactia, a subsidiary of Fonterra Co-Operative Group of New Zealand, a dairy products exporter, and Orion of St. Louis.

Cold Spring Harbor scientists will use the data to annotate publicly available plant sequences with the aim of improving forage and cereal crops for traits such as nutritive value and yield. The results will be available through the Gramene database.
