The Centre of Plant Structural and Functional Genomics has been established to study the structure and function of nuclear genome in higher plants. The laboratory is a part of the Institute of Experimental Botany and the Centre of the Region Haná for Biotechnological and Agricultural Research.
The Centre of Plant Structural and Functional Genomics provides seeds of reference DNA standards suitable for plant genome size estimation. Please, send your requests to: dolezelueb [dot] cas [dot] cz
An ordered draft sequence of the 17-gigabase hexaploid bread wheat (Triticum aestivum)
genome has been produced by sequencing isolated chromosome arms.
We produced a reference sequence of the 1-gigabase chromosome 3B of hexaploid bread wheat. By sequencing 8452 bacterial artificial chromosomes in pools, we assembled a sequence of 774 megabases ........
Genetic blueprint of bread wheat genome unveiled. The last step before obtaining the complete DNA sequence of important crops. The genetic blueprint is an invaluable resource to plant science researchers and breeders. For the first time, they have at their disposal a set of tools enabling them to rapidly locate specific genes on individual wheat chromosomes throughout the genome. The team of Professor Jaroslav Doležel developed the chromosome-based strategy to unlock the complex genome of wheat, which is about six times larger the human genome. The team established a unique set of tools for purification of individual chromosomes and they produce chromosome-specific molecular resources for members of IWGSC. This facilitates sequencing the wheat genome following the chromosome by chromosome strategy. Thanks to this, the Czech scientists participate on sequencing all 21 chromosomes of wheat.
