New USask-led research reveals previously hidden features of plant genomes

An international team led by the Plant Phenotyping and Imaging Research Centre (P2IRC) at the University of Saskatchewan (USask) and researchers at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) has decoded the full genome for the black mustard plant–research that will advance breeding of oilseed mustard crops and provides a foundation for improved breeding of wheat, canola and lentils.
