Collaborating with Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Zhangjiakou city, we initiated millet genome de novo sequencing project and the phase findings were published in Nature Biotechnology on 14 May, 2012.(Gengyun Zhang, Xin Liu, Zhiwu Quan et al. Genome sequence of foxtail millet (Setaria italica) provides insights into grass evolution and biofuel potential. Nature Biotechnology. doi:10.1038/nbt.2195)

 

Foxtail millet whole genome sequence map

 

High density genetic linkage map construction and important traits related gene mapping in foxtail millet

(Genes related to herbicide resistant, plant height, sterility, heading stage and leaf color had been fine mapped or cloned)
