The genome sequences of many important Triticeae species, including bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), remained uncharacterized for a long time because their high repeat content, large sizes, and polyploidy. As a result of improvements in sequencing technologies and novel analyses strategies, several of these have recently been deciphered. These efforts have generated new insights into Triticeae biology and genome organization and have important implications for… 

Towards a whole‐genome sequence for rye (Secale cereale L.)

This rye whole-genome sequence closes a gap in Triticeae genome research, and will be highly valuable for comparative genomics, functional studies and genome-based breeding in rye.

Wheat genomic study for genetic improvement of traits in China.

Bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is a major crop that feeds 40% of the world's population. Over the past several decades, advances in genomics have led to tremendous achievements in understanding

Identification of molecular markers for the Pc39 gene conferring resistance to crown rust in oat

Six new PCR-based markers for the Pc39 crown rust resistance gene in Avena sativa L. were developed, which will be useful in marker-assisted selection and could find applications in the fine mapping or positional cloning of this gene.

Population Genomics Along With Quantitative Genetics Provides a More Efficient Valorization of Crop Plant Genetic Diversity in Breeding and Pre-breeding Programs

Here, some relevant concepts in population genomics together with recent advances in quantitative genetics are reviewed in order to discuss how the combination of both disciplines can facilitate the use of genetic diversity in plant (pre) breeding programs.

Maize susceptibility to Ustilago maydis is influenced by genetic and chemical perturbation of carbohydrate allocation.

Analysis of the transcriptome of maize tumours induced by Ustilago maydis reveals key aspects of metabolism that are critical for biotrophic adaptation during the maize-U.

Towards an open grapevine information system

An open working group is formed, in the framework of the International Grapevine Genome Program, to construct a coordinated federation of information systems holding grapevine data distributed around the world, providing an integrated set of interfaces supporting advanced data modeling, rich semantic integration and the next generation of data mining tools.

Identification of a Major QTL and Candidate Gene Analysis of Salt Tolerance at the Bud Burst Stage in Rice (Oryza sativa L.) Using QTL-Seq and RNA-Seq

An F2:3 population derived from a cross between IR36 and Weiguo was used to identify salt-tolerant QTL interval at the bud burst stage and sequence analysis revealed OsSAP16, a stress-associated protein whose expression is increased under drought stress that is useful for gene cloning of qRSL7 and for improving the salt tolerance of rice varieties by marker assisted selection.

Knowledge representation and data sharing to unlock crop variation for nutritional food security

Development of a Crop Dietary Nutrition Ontology (CDNO) is proposed as a robust structured controlled vocabulary for dietary nutritional composition and function, and examples of specific use cases and different end users who would benefit from using CDNO terms in their database searches are provided.

TGAC Browser: An open-source genome browser for non-model organisms

Genome browsers play a vital role to provide visualisation for genomic data. It is often the case that bespoke genome browser customisations are required between different research groups, with an



Draft genome of the wheat A-genome progenitor Triticum urartu

The T. urartu genome assembly provides a diploid reference for analysis of polyploid wheat genomes and is a valuable resource for the genetic improvement of wheat.
