An international team has produced a draft of wheat’s DNA sequence, one that identifies many of its genes and has made possible the identification of thousands of potential genetic changes that could improve this key crop.”A tremendous resource for wheat improvement and plant genetics has been developed,” says Jeffrey Bennetzen, a plant geneticist at the University of Georgia, Athens, who was not involved with the work………. << Access the complete article<<
