Variation data for bread wheat
Release 23 of Ensembl Plants includes three pubilc variation datasets for bread wheat hosted by CerealsDB: the 820K Axiom SNP array, the 80K iSelect array, and the KASP probe set. In total, ~724,000 SNPs have been imported from 248 samples based on probe alignments to the reference sequence performed at The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC). The data has been processed into the Ensembl variation infrastructure, allowing users search for SNPs by SNP ID (BA or BS nomenclature), find nearby genes, and view or download variation consequences.
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 2.2). 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.
Databases are constructed in a direct collaboration with the Gramene resource, funded by the United States National Science Foundation award #1127112. More information about our collaboration with Gramene in available here.
