Understanding genome sequences and how they evolved is critical for harnessing that evolutionary process for agricultural improvement. Whether asking questions about the gain/loss of genes, the role of structural variation on phenotypic diversity, or identifying favorable alleles in exotic and wild species, DNA and RNA sequencing have proven to be extremely valuable tools for breeding programs all over the world. This panel-style webinar brings together three plant biologists to talk about their journeys into sequencing plant genomes and how these efforts have helped push plant breeding forward.
