The NIAB Multi-parent Advanced Generation Inter-Cross wheat populations, or MAGIC, were created using BBSRC funding. Subsequent genotyping and phenotyping have been funded directly by NIAB.
This site contains information and files relevant to the NIAB Elite MAGIC and NIAB Diverse MAGIC populations.

NIAB Diverse MAGIC: Scott MF, Fradgley N, Bentley AR, Brabbs T, Corke F, Gardner KA, Horsnell R, Ladejobi O, Mackay IJ, Mott R, Cockram J (2022). Limited haplotype diversity underlies polygenic trait architecture across 70 years of wheat breeding. Genome Biology, volume 22, article 137. Doi: https://doi.org/10.1186/s13059-021-02354-7
Small numbers of seeds of each RIL can be supplied, subject to the cost of shipping (including any phytosanitary and other import charges) and a small charge for the cost of seed replacement.
