Welcome to the website of the Brassica Genome Project, funded by the BBSRC's IGF programme.

We have now achieved our objectives which were to:

  • create draft physical maps of the Brassica 'A' and 'C' genomes by fingerprinting BAC libraries
  • to integrate these with the Arabidopsis genome sequence by hybridisation with selected gene anchor probes
  • to be responsive to the Brassica and Arabidopsis user communities, publishing data in real time, soliciting nominations for the anchor probes and supplying BAC clones on request
