Integrating cereal genomics to support innovation in the Triticeae

Funct Integr Genomics. 2012 Nov;12(4):573-83. doi: 10.1007/s10142-012-0300-5. Epub 2012 Nov 17.


The genomic resources of small grain cereals that include some of the most important crop species such as wheat, barley, and rye are attaining a level of completion that now is contributing to new structural and functional studies as well as refining molecular marker development and mapping strategies for increasing the efficiency of breeding processes. The integration of new efforts to obtain reference sequences in bread wheat and barley, in particular, is accelerating the acquisition and interpretation of genome-level analyses in both of these major crops.
