An ordered draft sequence of the 17-gigabase hexaploid bread wheat (Triticum aestivum) genome has been produced by sequencing isolated chromosome arms. We have annotated 124,201 gene loci distributed nearly evenly across the homeologous chromosomes and subgenomes. Comparative gene analysis of wheat subgenomes and extant diploid and tetraploid wheat relatives showed that high sequence similarity and structural conservation are retained, with limited gene loss, after polyploidization. However… Expand
Chromosome-scale assembly of the bread wheat genome, Triticum aestivum, reveals over 5700 new genes
TLDR
A reference-guided effort to scaffold contigs into chromosome-length pseudomolecules, add in any missing sequence that was unique to the IWGSC 1.0 assembly, and annotate the resulting pseudomolescules with genes. Expand
Structural and functional partitioning of bread wheat chromosome 3B
TLDR
The distribution of structural and functional features along the chromosome revealed partitioning correlated with meiotic recombination and high wheat-specific inter- and intrachromosomal gene duplication activities that are potential sources of variability for adaption. Expand
Chromosome‐based survey sequencing reveals the genome organization of wild wheat progenitor Triticum dicoccoides
TLDR
Chromosome‐based sequence assemblies contained five novel miRNA families, among 59 families putatively encoded in the entire genome which provide insight into the domestication of wheat and an overview of the genome content and organization. Expand
Chromosome-Scale Assembly of the Bread Wheat Genome Reveals Thousands of Additional Gene Copies
TLDR
A reference-guided effort to scaffold contigs into chromosome-length pseudomolecules, add in any missing sequence that was unique to the IWGSC CS v1.0 assembly, and annotate the resulting pseudomolescules with genes is described. Expand
Development of a D genome specific marker resource for diploid and hexaploid wheat
TLDR
The resources developed herein can aid map-based cloning of traits of interest and the sequencing of the D genome of hexaploid wheat and the ordering of these sequence contigs within the deletion bins. Expand
Molecular organization and comparative analysis of chromosome 5B of the wild wheat ancestor Triticum dicoccoides
TLDR
Next-generation sequencing of the flow-sorted chromosome 5B of T. dicoccoides is reported to shed light into its genome structure, function and organization by exploring the repetitive elements, protein-encoding genes and putative microRNA and tRNA coding sequences. Expand
Multiple wheat genomes reveal global variation in modern breeding
TLDR
Comparative analysis of multiple genome assemblies from wheat reveals extensive diversity that results from the complex breeding history of wheat and provides a basis for further potential improvements to this important food crop. Expand
Integrated physical map of bread wheat chromosome arm 7DS to facilitate gene cloning and comparative studies.
TLDR
This map integration, interconnecting a total of 1713 markers with ordered and sequenced BAC clones from a minimal tiling path, provides a tool to speed up gene cloning in wheat and facilitated a comparison of bread wheat and its ancestor at BAC-contig level and revealed a reconstructed region in the 7DS pericentromere.

Chromosome-scale comparative sequence analysis unravels molecular mechanisms of genome evolution between two wheat cultivars
TLDR
This comparative analysis of two high-quality chromosome assemblies enabled a comprehensive assessment of large structural variations between two bread wheat genotypes, and identified four large insertions/deletions of >100 kb. Expand
