Congrats to Prof Assaf Distelfeld and our alumni Dr. Valentyna Klymiuk for the new Nature paper.

Big Congrats to our new member  Prof Assaf Distelfeld and our past student Valentyna Klymiuk (from Prof Tzion Fahima’s lab), for *another* very important paper in a line of pioneering works and publications exploring the genomics and evolution of wheat.

This achievement continues the legacy started by Eibi Nevo, followed by Tzion Fahima (that is still very active and just recently won a very prestigious nomination), and now Assaf that took the Institute of Evolution chair, making U Haifa a prominent leading centre in wheat research.
