Oat genomic resources for breeders and pre-breeders

Yield gains in oats are currently limited by the lack of availability of modern genomic and genotyping resources. Recently an international consortium consisting of members from the UK, Germany, Sweden, Finland, China, Canada, USA and Australia resolved to sequence multiple oat genotypes, develop modern oat genomic resources and construct an oat pan-genome.

This investment will sequence and assemble three oat genomes, including two Australian varieties which cover the diversity of Australian oat breeding germplasm and one wild oat genotype, as part of the international consortium efforts.
