Red clover genome to boost sustainable farming

The genome of the red clover has been sequenced and assembled to help breeders improve the beneficial traits of this important forage crop.

Scientists at +The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC) in collaboration with the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS), published the genome in Scientific Reports.

Before industrial nitrogen fertiliser production red clover and other legume crops were essential in crop rotation, improving soil fertility. Legumes boost soil nitrate fertility by assimilating nitrogen from the air, recruiting soil bacteria to help – this is considerably more eco-friendly than the equivalent industrial process.

Now environmental concerns and climate change mitigation is putting red clover back in the spotlight. This requires genetic improvements to help boost its performance.

Really proud that my team delivered the library construction and sequencing for this project. This assembly is really tightly linked in terms of the algorithm and library construction and read lengths. A mix of tight size selected 2x250PE shotgun sequencing, multiple LMP libraries, a heavily modified DISCOVAR de novo. And several weeks run time on our SGI UV 2K....
 
More accurate wheat genome made available to scientists

A more complete and accurate wheat genome assembly is being made available to researchers, by +The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC) .

This landmark resource builds on international efforts and will help wheat breeders accelerate their crop improvement programmes and researchers to discover genes for key traits such as yield, nutrient use and bread-making quality.

As wheat is one of the world’s most vital crops, the new genomics resources will help secure future food supplies.
Investing in world-class bioscience research and training on behalf of the UK public.
