The bread wheat genome is both extremely large and complex. It is more than five times larger than the human genome and comprises 21 chromosomes originating from three individual subgenomes with highly similar gene contents. To circumvent this complexity, the IWGSC adopted a chromosome by chromosome strategy to sequence the wheat genome.
