Barley is an important crop plant for malting, food, and feeding purposes. Diverse genetic resources of wild and cultivated barleys are preserved in this species. Large amounts of genetic stocks of barley have been developed due to its diploid genome structure. Barley is considered as a model genome for Triticeae species including cultivated wheat. BAC libraries, significant amount of ESTs and full length cDNAs have been developed in barley. The barley genome sequences (98%) and polymorphism information among haplotypes were released in October 2012. We have preserved barley accessions which have been originally collected or developed, a BAC library and cDNA clones by the NBRP at Institute of Plant Science and Resources, Okayama University. The project is aiming to supply these resources to both local and foreign scientists to accelerate the genome and genetic analyses, and develop new cultivars in barley and related species.
- cultivar and experimental resources 5,256 strains
- Core collection 380 strains
- EST/cDNA 139,933 clones
- BAC 300000 clones
- BAC filter(for 1 library)
- BAC superpool DNA(for 1 library)
