Brachypodium: a new monocot model plant system emerges
The small grass species Brachypodium distachyon (purple false brome) is potentially an ideal model plant system for grass crop research. To realise this potential, a range of genetic and genomic resources have been developed in a very short period of time, and more still are in the pipeline. David Garvin explains how these resources will establish B. distachyon as the newest model plant system and will fill a long-empty void in genomics resources for grass crop improvement.
