The Sugarcane Genome Sequencing Initiative (SUGESI): Strategies for Sequencing a Highly Complex Genome

Sugarcane cultivars derive from recent interspecific hybrids obtained by crossing Saccharum officinarum and Saccharum spontaneum and represent relevant feedstock used worldwide for biofuel production.

GENOAK : Sequencing of the oak genome and identification of genes that matter for forest tree adaptation

The objective of the GENOAK project are to establish a high quality reference genome sequence for Quercus robur, and to identify genes involved in adaptation through the analysis of adaptive divergence (incipient ecological speciation) at the transcriptome and genome-wide levels.

GenoPheno: Genomics of phenology in the pine processionary moth

This project aims at developing population genomics approaches to identify loci potentially linked to the evolution of phenology in the pine processionary moth Thaumetopoea pityocampa...

EXOTIC: EXperimentally Orientated genomics to Tackle Insects’ adaptive Challenges during bioinvasions: the ladybird Harmonia axyridis as a model species

The objective of this project is to decipher the adaptive changes observed at various traits that occurred during the invasion of the harlequin ladybird (Harmonia axyridis), through the close integration of population genomics with experimental studies...

Screening the R570 sugarcane BAC library to identify BAC clones that underlie QTL of agronomic importance

In the last five years a consortium of scientists from a number of countries including Australia have grouped together to form the Sugarcane Genome Sequencing Initiative (SUGESI). The goal of this consortium is to generate a combined monoploid genom e sequence of sugarcane.
