Note Venue

In August 2010, Liverpool and Bristol, together with the John Innes Institute released sequence data covering ~95% of the wheat genome. In the two years since this public release, the sequences have been used by academic/industrial researchers to both understand the structure of the allohexaploid wheat genome and to develop new tools, which can be used to increase yield and profitability. In my talk I will discuss how the wheat genome might be changing under current selection pressures. In addition, I will also discuss our ongoing work, primarily directed at helping UK wheat breeders to generate the next generation of wheat varieties.
