  • Dutch consortium unravels first tulip genome

    A consortium of three leading Dutch organisations has been collaborating since May 2017 with the aim of making tulip breeding and production faster and more sustainable. The first results were announced today: using the latest technologies, it is now possible to identify the DNA sequence of the tulip genome. This is one of the biggest genomes ever sequenced. The results will be made available to the public so that the knowledge gained can be fully utilised.
