Wheat Genome Data from IWGSC Have Been Released
According to wheatgenome.org, all data related to the reference sequence of bread wheat, IWGSC RefSeq v1.0, are available without restriction. We would like to use this opportunity to demonstrate the abilities of the web version of Persephone, a tool specifically designed to deal with large data sets, such as the wheat genome. We just have uploaded the reference sequences assembled into 22 pseudo-chromosomes (14 Gbp) and one annotation track with gene models. The search index and BLAST database are being updated. We plan to populate the database with new tracks on a daily basis, please check it out.
