ERA-CAPS funded project makes important contribution to crop production

Published in Genome Research, based on a novel method developed by Earlham Institute, UK, an international research team have uncovered the hidden genetic secrets that give wheat its remarkable ability for local adaptation - revealing a previously untapped resource for breeding better, more resilient wheat.

Funded by ERA-CAPS, the ERA-Net for Coordinating Action in Plant Sciences, BBSRC, DFG and NSF, project INTREPID research builds on Earlham Institute’s previous epigenetic work on Chinese Spring wheat (Clavijo et al., Genome Research, 2017) using the advances in wheat genomic resources, as well as in preparation for the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium.
