Terraced Rice Fields in Vietnam

TGAC scientists will work with researchers in Vietnam to use genomics to help rice battle climate change, emerging pathogens, and urban development.

Researchers moved one step closer to a whole reference genome for barley by successfully sequencing the largest gene-rich section to date.

 

Access to the full genome map is expected to boost efforts to develop more resistant, higher-yield varieties of wheat.

The project aims to sequence nine different taxa of cultivated potato and one closely-related wild species to facilitate the production of improved varieties of the crop.

The company has signed an agreement for the purchase and sale of 1,200,000 shares of common stock.

Under the agreement, customers will be able to purchase GeneSeek Genomic Profiler SNP arrays from Illumina, initially for genotyping cattle, pigs, and horses.

The 3000 Rice Genomes Project will use DNANexus' platform in effort to improve nutrition, climate tolerance, and disease resistance in rice.

Registered users of the IBP will have access to a range of genotyping services through LGS.

Subscription-based access with separate pricing options for industry and academia may be able to support TAIR and other research repositories facing dwindling government funding.

The paper describes a method of identifying genetic markers for reconstructing the phylogeny of the Penstemon genus from low coverage WGS data.
