Bristol Lands UK Grant to Sequence Wheat Genome | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Bristol University will lead a team that will use a £1.7million ($2.4 million) grant from the UK government to sequence the wheat genome, Bristol said today.

Bristol will work with scientists at the University of Liverpool and the John Innes Centre to identify differences between the UK's most common wheat varieties.

Scientists at the centers will generate sequence from a standard wheat strain and from four varieties in order to provide a range of genetic variation that is used by UK breeders.
