NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – An international team of researchers looking into genomic patterns in wheat has developed a map of genetic variability and unearthed alleles that were subject to selection, according
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The UK and India governments each plan to use up to £5 million ($7.8 million) to fund research projects that use genomics and bioinformatics technologies to improve the breeding of crops that are important to future food security.
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Some plants, especially angiosperms, have monstrously large genomes, posing a unique set of problems for which researchers conducting plant genomic studies have developed a number of clever solutions.
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – An effort to characterize epigenetic patterns and their interactions with underlying genetic profiles in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana highlights the epigenetic variation present in plant populations.
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Members of an international consortium have sequenced a draft version of the chickpea genome, making chickpea, or Cicer arietinum, the third crop legume plant to have its genome unraveled and published so far.
SAN DIEGO (GenomeWeb News) – Members of the Next Generation Cassava Breeding project are gearing up to implement genomic selection in cassava breeding in sub-Saharan Africa — a strategy that's expected to help breeders of the staple crop develop new cassava varieties more quickly.
