Designing Future Wheat

The BBSRC funded Designing Future Wheat Institute Strategic Programme (ISP), spans eight research institutes and universities and aims to develop new wheat germplasm containing the next generation of key traits. Building on this research we will then provide this new germplasm in a readily accessible and referenced form to commercial crop breeders and the plant science community.

The cross-institute programme grant, Designing Future Wheat (DFW), is the first flagship project of its kind to bring the UK’s wheat researchers together to deliver new varieties relevant to the international stage, through the coordinated effort of biologists, breeders, and informaticians. As such, Grassroots is funded by the DFW programme, enabling us to build a platform that can meet the needs of not only this ambitious programme, but the wider UK and international wheat community that needs fast and openly-licenced unfettered access to the data and experimental information arising from DFW.
