Genome sequencing in the large genome Triticeae species was lagging behind the early progress made in crops like rice, sorghum, and maize. The introduction of next-generation sequencing technology has changed this situation dramatically which has also overcome the need of forming large international genome consortia to achieve the goals of a genome sequencing project. Today reference quality sequences have been published for barley and diploid as well as tetraploid wheat progenitor species. Similar resources for bread wheat and rye are in close reach and, in fact, multiple high-quality genome sequences of barley, wheat, and rye can be expected within the next 1 or 2 years. The status of Triticeae genome sequencing and application of this novel information is reviewed in this chapter.
