Kansas State University scientists, in collaboration with the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC), published today in the international journal Science a detailed description of the complete genome of bread wheat, the world’s most widely-cultivated crop.

This work authored by more than 200 scientists from 73 research institutions in 20 countries will pave the way for the production of wheat varieties better adapted to climate challenges, with higher yields, enhanced nutritional quality and improved sustainability.

France Diplomatie, 19/07/2018 - Des chercheurs japonais et américains viennent de décrire un mécanisme génétique qui confère à l'espèce de riz Oryza sativa, une capacité d'adaptation à une augmentation importante (plusieurs mètres) et prolongée d’eau suite à des pluies abondantes. Ils ont également mis en évidence le mécanisme moléculaire en cause.
