External Funding

In the context of German plant genome project, GABI-FUTURE (2008-2011), we are funded to generate, assemble, and annotate the reference sequence for the 800 Mbp genome of sugar beet (Beta vulgaris) in the context of the "BeetSeq" project. See press release (in German), the GABI-FUTURE website, and the research section.

See also the sugar beet genetics and genomics web site.

Sugar beet genome analysis will be continued 2011-2014 with "AnnoBeet" in the context of the research program "Pflanzenbiotechnologie der Zukunft", funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, BMBF.
