The IWGSC draft sequence is a major landmark towards obtaining a complete reference sequence of the complex bread wheat genome, the ultimate aim of the consortium.
“With the draft gene sequence for each of the bread wheat chromosome and the first reference sequence of chromosome 3B, we have reached a great milestone in our roadmap,” said Catherine Feuillet, IWGSC co-chair.
However, with the recent advances in sequencing technologies, genome sequence of bread wheat is almost complete by the efforts of ITMI (The International Triticeae Mapping Initiative) and IWGSC (International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium).
