Better wheat varieties in the future? Wheat genome shows resistance genes easy to access

ScienceDaily: It's hard to go anywhere without a map -- especially into the deep and complex world of genetics. Now, Kansas State University researcher Bikram Gill and an international team of researchers have developed a physical map of wheat's wild ancestor, Aegilops tauschii, commonly called goatgrass, as they take the first huge step toward sequencing the wheat genome -- a complete look at wheat's genetic matter. A physical map of a genome shows the physical locations of genes and other DNA sequences of......
