Past successes

Wageningen scientists have played an important role in the sequencing of the genome of a number of key organisms. Large parts of the genomes of the model plant Arabidopsis, the tomato and the potato were mapped in Wageningen.

Together with colleagues from other research institutes, Wageningen scientists have also established the genetic code of several important farm animals. Below is a brief overview of the most important publications of DNA sequences to which scientists from Wageningen UR made a major contribution:
