After 13 years of collaborative research involving more than 200 scientists across 73 research institutions in 20 countries, the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC) has finally deciphered the wheat genome code. The detailed description of the genome of bread wheat, the world's most widely cultivated crop, was announced on August 16, 2018 in the international journal Science. The NRC's Raju Datla, Daoquan Xiang, Janet Condie and Yifang Tan contributed to this important research coordinated by IWGSC, which will pave the way for the production of wheat varieties better adapted to climate challenges, with higher yields, enhanced nutritional quality and improved sustainability.

Breaking a jar of liquid honey in his backpack while hiking in the 1990s got John Rowe thinking that honey should really be available in solid form. Since no one had ever invented such a product, he spent the next decade researching and developing the planet's first cube of solid honey that not only was 100 per cent natural, but also retained the look and taste of the raw source used to sweeten tea.
