SCIENTISTS crack the WHEAT GENE. 5 TIMES more COMPLEX than a HUMAN!!
The genome of the bread wheat, whose DNA is notoriously complex, is close to being completed, according to an international team of scientists.

Publishing in the journal Nature, they say they had analysed between 94,000 and 96,000 genes in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum).

According to the paper, the plant's genome is nearly five times as big as humans.

The genes exist in what is in fact a triple genome, reflecting bread wheat's legacy as the 8000-year-old offspring of three species of grasses.

Gene sequencing will help plant breeders in their search for strains that offer higher yields and are better able to tolerate floods, droughts and salty soils, the researchers said.

Wheat today accounts for a fifth of the world's calorific intake, and this importance can only grow, given the world's rising population and the impact of climate change on food production, say experts.

WHEAT IS EVIL!!!!!

processed foods, breads, wheat products make you fat!!!! lazy! mean! ugly!!!

take this article for example....how can something so complex, more so than human genes, be properly digestible?

3 years off wheat, fit, healthy and happy, and have helped many people get there too.
