About Aegilops tauschii
Aegilops tauschii (goatgrass) is the diploid progenitor of the bread wheat D-genome, providing important evolutionary information for wheat. The bread wheat genome is a hexaploid, resulting from the hybridization of the wild A. tauschii with a cultivated tetraploid wheat, Triticum turgidum. This spontaneous event occured about 8,000 years ago in the Fertile Crescent.
