Wheat Stem Rust Fungus Genome Sequencing Project

The major objectives of this project are: to produce an assembled genome sequence of a wheat stem rust isolate; to develop expressed sequence tags from carrier DNA libraries representing different stages of fungal development; and to annotate the sequences and make these data publicly available. These researchers are using the BSCL for this project.
