Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


High-quality reference genomes of einkorn wheat, the world’s first domesticated crop, have now been sequenced. The contiguous wheat genome assemblies include gap-free centromeres (parts of the chromosome that are crucial for cell division). The genomes shed light on the evolution of einkorn wheat and provide opportunities for improving wheat and other cereals.
