Welcome to the PGSB Triticeae genomes database

TriticeaeGenome project (Genomics for Triticeae improvement) is designed to achieve significant progresses in Triticeae genomics and support efficient breeding of improved varieties for the European agriculture. This European project was launched on 1st June 2008, for a duration of 4 years, and mobilises 14 European research institutes and 2 industrial partners, from 9 different countries.

Large amounts of physical map information and BAC end sequences (WP1), genetic mapping and molecular markers data (WP2), and genomic sequences from targeted regions (WP3) will be produced during the TriticeaeGenome project.

WP5 aims at developing new tools to structure, relate, and analyse these data comprehensively. A first task is to build a conceptual database and a web interface to store and display physical maps integrated with genetic maps through molecular markers and sequence data. This "TriticeaeGenome platform" will capture and integrate publicly available data from related national and international efforts. Since no database has been established for the wheat or barley international consortia thus far, this platform can be proposed as a reference for the Triticeae physical maps and sequence collections that will be generated by the other international projects.

The PGSB TriticeaeGenome databases provide an entry point to explore, search, visualize and compare marker data, genetic maps, sequence data and synteny information generated from both inside and outside the EU project for barley and wheat.

This project is supported by the European Commision under the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development.
