The purpose of the International Olive (Olea europaea) Genome Consortium (IOGC) is to sequence the whole genome of olive and identify the nature of the plant in every aspects.
The IOGC web site will serve for:
open, accessible registration/participation in the consortium
the dissemination of general information and scientific updates, on sequencing the olive genome, transcriptome and other noteworthy national and international research activities
ultimately input to and view/review of the Olive science plan.
