Statistical Challenges Arising from Genome Resequencing

The recent advances in sequencing technologies have opened up new opportunities in the application of genomics to crop breeding. Although some of the model plant species and crops such as rice have been sequenced and annotated the access to the genomes for some of the most important crops, in particular grasses remain challenging. Some of these species are characterised by very large genomes or include features such as paleo/alloploidy. We will discuss some of these challenges in the context of the study of crops from the Brassicaceae and Poaceae families with particular emphasis on reference-free approaches for the design of maker-assisted selection
