1000 Plant Genomes project

uablertalogoThe 1000 plants (oneKP or 1KP) initiative is an international multi-disciplinary consortium that has generated large-scale gene sequencing data for over 1000 species of plants. Major supporters include Alberta Ministry of Innovation and Advanced Education, Musea Ventures (Somekh Family Foundation), Beijing Genomics Institute in Shenzhen (BGI-Shenzhen), China National GeneBank (CNGB), iPlant Tree-of-Life (iPToL) Grand Challenge, Compute Canada (Westgrid), Alberta Innovates Technology Futures (AITF-iCORE Strategic Chair). The sample selection was originally based on a series of overlapping sub-projects with scientific objectives that could be addressed by sequencing multiple plant species (links on left). As more collaborators joined 1KP, however, the objectives evolved and are now exemplified by the diverse collection of papers described by the links below.
