GenomeZipper Report

The GenomeZipper uses a novel approach that incorporates chromosome sorting, second generation sequencing, array hybridization and systematic exploitation of conserved synteny with model grasses. A series of bioinformatically constructed 'zippers' integrate gene indices of rice, sorghum and brachypodium in a conserved synteny model and assemble wheat genes in a putative linear order. The genomeZipper files provide an ordered, information-rich scaffold of the wheat genome.

Now available on this side: search and data overview for the individual GenomeZipper results for all wheat chromosomes.
