2012 Cotton Biotechnology Award Recipients
Date:1/17/2013

NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As part of the recent Plant and Animal Genomic Conference held in San Diego, Dr. Don Jones of Cotton Incorporated presented the 2012 Cotton Biotechnology Award to five outstanding researchers that were instrumental in mapping the cotton genome. The diverse and talented team, composed of Dr. Andrew Paterson , Dr. Jonathan Wendel , Mr. Jeremy Schmutz , Dr. Dan Peterson , and Dr. Dan Rokhsar led the collaborative international effort to complete the first 'gold standard' Gossypium genome sequence.  The gold standard Gossypium raimondii genome sequence provides the reference blueprint that will revolutionize cotton genetic improvement in the next five to 10 years.

More than a decade ago, the cotton research community began a conversation to determine the appropriate path to sequence the genomes of Gossypium. At the time, the community, via the International Cotton Genome Initiative, held open dialogue and ultimately determined the best route was to first sequence the diploid progenitor ancestors of Upland cotton. In concert with this community-based recommendation, this group of five from diverse scientific disciplines spearheaded the effort that was published in Nature on December 20, 2012.  This landmark paper is the first cotton centric research to be published in this prestigious journal in over 50 years. 

Commenting on the effort, Dr. Robert Wright , Professor at Texas Tech University, lauded  the leadership exhibited by this group:  "Many individuals contributed to the background knowledge that led to this research; however, these five were the core group that
