Wheat Framework Data Initiatives

Bioplatforms Australia is creating wheat datasets to complement important research aimed at improving crop yields and wheat defence mechanisms.

As a staple food crop for the world’s population and Australia’s most important grain export, its economic significance and potential for global food security will ensure that large scale genomic datasets will make an invaluable contribution to current and on-going research.

The project involves a broad collaboration across research, industry and government sectors to ensure the datasets focus on varieties significant to the Australian wheat industry and cover critical pathogens and pests. The datasets are grouped as follows:
