NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – NRGene has mapped the complete wild Emmer wheat genome, the company said last week.  

Wild Emmer wheat possesses genes that aren't present in cultivated wheat, which enables the plant to tolerate severe environmental conditions and better resist pests and diseases. Having access to the full genome map of Emmer wheat improves wheat research efforts and will help seed companies develop stronger and higher-yield grains at a fraction of the cost, according to NRGene.
