New Milestone in Sequencing of Barley Genome

Kelly MarshallBarley, Research, wheat

In 2000 a team of scientists at the University of California began work to sequence the genome of barley.  The work is time consuming since it is a large and highly repetitive genome that is difficult to fully sequence. Recently researchers announced they have unlocked nearly two-thirds of the barley genes.  This information is expect to not only expand our knowledge … Read More
