Potato pangenome research drives collaboration between international public and private sectors

A team from Wageningen University & Research (WUR) collaborates with NRGene and other industrial partners in multi-genome mapping of commercial food potatoes. The potato pangenome will synergise the assembly information to contribute a comprehensive genomics view of the potato genome. The group, led by Dr Richard Finkers and Professor Richard Visser from WUR, is seeking other researchers from academia and industry to join the project to enrich the pan-genome analysis and thus better characterise the natural genetic diversity of the species. Read more.
