The Assembly Converter Tool allows the conversion of a variety of annotation formats between different versions of a genome assembly.

Comparing the bread wheat component genomes

IWGCS logoHexaploid bread wheat (Triticum aestivum) was formed by two separate hybridization events, bringing together the diploid progenitor genomes into a single species where they have been independently maintained. The A, B and D component genomes have been compared, allowing us to call orthology relationships between them, identifying the so called homoeologous genes. Click here for example. Relationships between the component genomes can also now be browsed in our new region comparison view. Click here for example.

The bread wheat genome in Ensembl Plants is the chromosome survey sequence for Triticum aestivum cv. Chinese Spring generated by the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium. The gene models are provided by MIPS (version 2.1). A total of 99,386 protein coding genes have been predicted.

Ensembl Plants is developed in coordination with other plant genomics and bioinformatics groups via the EBI's role in the transPLANT consortium. The transPLANT project is funded by the European Commission within its 7th Framework Programme, under the thematic area "Infrastructures", contract number 283496.

Wheat genomics resources are developed as part of our involvement in the consortium Triticeae Genomics For Sustainable Agriculture. Barley genomics resources are funded through the UK barley genome sequencing project. Both projects are funded by the BBSRC.
