Wheat Harvester SolidWorks
Wheat is the collective name of the wheat family of plants, a monocotyledonous plant, a grass plant widely grown around the world, the wheat grain is one of the staples of human food, ground into flour to make bread, buns, cookies, noodles and other food; fermentation can be made into beer, alcohol, liquor (such as vodka), or biomass fuel. Wheat is rich in starch, protein, fat, minerals, calcium, iron, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin A and vitamin C, etc.
Wheat is one of the three major grains and is used almost entirely for food, with only about one-sixth used as feed. The two river basins were the first regions in the world to cultivate wheat, and China was one of the first countries in the world to grow wheat. wheat was the second most produced grain crop in the world in 2010 (651 million tons), after corn (844 million tons).
2017, a research team led by Jia Jizeng, a researcher at the Institute of Crop Science, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, completed the fine mapping of the D genome at the chromosome level and obtained a complete integrated map of the D genome of wheat for the first time.
In 2018, a research team from the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences completed the sequencing and chromosome fine mapping of the wheat A genome. The structure and expression characteristics of the wheat A genome were comprehensively revealed. This result was published online in the international academic journal Nature on May 10.
