Medicago truncatula Genome Project

The Medicago truncatula sequencing project was initiated with a generous grant from Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation to the University of Oklahoma. Beginning in 2003 (and renewed in 2006), the National Science Foundation and the European Union's Sixth Framework Programme provided funding to complete sequencing of the euchromatic genespace. Among the eight chromosomes in Medicago, six were sequenced in the US by the NSF-funded projects, one (chromosome 5) was sequenced in France by Genoscope with funding from the EU and INRA, and one (chromosome 3) was sequenced in the United Kingdom with funding from the EU and BBSRC.
