An online repository of weed genomic information developed and maintained by the International Weed Genome Consortium.
The IWGC was conceived at the 2016 International Weed Science Congress in Prague, Czech Republic in order to foster greater collaboration among weed science researchers focused genomics of weed species. Dr. Scott McElroy at Auburn University began working on the Weed Genomics Repository in 2014 in order to provide easy public access to weed sequence data. The IWGC and the Weed Genomics Repository officially merged in February 2018 at a meeting of the Weed Science Society of America in Arlington, Virginia, USA.
The purpose of the Weed Genome Data Repository is to provide ease of access to weed genomic information for the weed science research community. While the majority of genomic related research in weed science is focused on herbicide resistance, our goal is to foster greater research in the field of population genomics and weed evolution. Our goal is also to grow the field of weed genomic related research by providing ease of access to genomic information to those not currently working the area.
Large data sets, distilled for searchability.
