The National Bioresource Project (NBRP)-WHEAT launched by the Japanese government in 2002 is aimed to maintain and distribute seed stocks and DNA clones of "Wheat". The third term NBRP-WHEAT continues its role as a center for genetic resources of wheat. The third term NBRP-Wheat is implemented by researchers at the Graduate School of Agriculture, Kyoto University as the core institution, and at Kihara Institute for Biological Research, Yokohama City University as the sub-institution. Researchers of wheat in Japan will form a committee to support the activities of NBRP-WHEAT, as in the first and second terms.
NBRP-WHEAT will not only continue the maintenance and distribution of seed stocks and DNA clones of wheat that were collected so far through the previous terms of NBRP, but will also continue the collection of seed stocks and DNA clones, focusing on wild species and local breeds that have not yet been incorporated into the NBRP project, and on full-length cDNA clones and EST clones. Useful genetic stocks will also be collected on occasion. These seed stocks and DNA clones will be distributed by responding to requests on this website. The third-term NBRP-Wheat will collect genotyping data of our collections to make our stocks more valuable in scientific researches.
