dc.identifier.citationEdwards, D. and Wilcox, S. and Barrero, R. and Fleury, D. and Cavanagh, C. and Forrest, K. and Hayden, M. et al. 2012. Bread matters: A national initiative to profile the genetic diversity of Australian wheat. Plant Biotechnology Journal. 10 (6): pp. 703-708.

The large and complex genome of wheat makes genetic and genomic analysis in this important species both expensive and resource intensive. The application of next-generation sequencing technologies is particularly resource intensive, with at least 17Gbp of sequence data required to obtain minimal (1×) coverage of the genome. A similar volume of data would represent almost 40× coverage of the rice genome. Progress can be made through the establishment of consortia to produce shared genomic resources. Australian wheat genome researchers, working with Bioplatforms Australia, have collaborated in a national initiative to establish a genetic diversity dataset representing Australian wheat germplasm based on whole genome next-generation sequencing data. Here, we describe the establishment and validation of this resource which can provide a model for broader international initiatives for the analysis of large and complex genomes.
