In the face of climate change, improving wheat varieties is essential to maintain yields—and genebanks are at the center of the process, a new study shows.
Published in a special issue of the journal Food Security, the study used large-scale datasets to trace the transfer of the genetic material in goat grass, a wild relative of wheat, into improved wheat varieties.
