Bread for the world - wheat genome fully mapped


A thirteen-year scientific effort has culminated in a paper published in the journal ‘Science’: over 200 scientists from 73 research institutions in 20 countries joined forces to map the genome of bread wheat. Researchers from Helmholtz Zentrum München and the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics ...
