High-precision genome sequencing of buckwheat breeds hope for future harvests

A research group led by Kyoto University’s Graduate School of Agriculture has deciphered buckwheat’s high-precision chromosomal-level genome sequence, a critical step toward unraveling the evolution of the buckwheat genome and the origins of the cultivated crop.

The international research team, led by Yasuo Yasui from the Graduate School of Agriculture at Kyoto University, that made these findings includes RIKEN, Japan’s National Agriculture and Food Research Organization, Chiba University, Kyoto Prefectural University, Kazusa DNA Research Institute, The Graduate University for Advanced Studies or SOKENDAI, Yunnan Agricultural University, and the University of Cambridge.
