Designing Future Wheat

The development of resources for wheat is funded by the BBSRC-funded Designing Future Wheat.

The Designing Future Wheat Institute Strategic Programme (ISP) spans eight research institutes and universities and aims to develop new wheat germplasm containing the next generation of key traits.

Ensembl Plants is part of Work package 4 which is responsible for the ‘Data access and analysis’ work package, working to advance the data landscape for wheat comparative analysis through new sequencing experiments, and the development of an informatics infrastructure to provide a comprehensive federated and open data portal.
