Overview

The wheat genome is large, complicated and arguably the most important genome of all in terms of food security. Join Ensembl Plants to learn more about where the latest IWGSC genome came from, how to explore homoeologues in wheat, along with their orthologues in the progenitor species and understand genetic variation in wheat.

Audience

This webinar is aimed at individuals who wish to learn more about using Ensembl to explore wheat genes. No prior knowledge of bioinformatics is required, but an undergraduate level understanding of biology would be useful.
