DAWN: a new resource for exploring genetic diversity in wheat

Dr Ute Baumann, leader of Program 5, led the development of a new resource to explore genetic diversity in wheat which was published in BMC Genomics (BMC Genomics 2018 19:941 https://doi.org/10.1186/s12864-018-5228-2). DAWN (Diversity Among Wheat geNomes) integrates the Chinese Spring reference genome with whole genome sequencing data of 16 accessions as well as exome capture data of 62 accessions. The platform enables researchers and breeders to investigate genotypic differences between wheat accessions at the level of whole chromosomes down to individual genes.
