  • Brachypodium distachyon, is proving to be a valuable system for the study of specific processes, including dissecting the biology of the cell wall, the development of the endosperm, the controls of flowering, and the development of inflorescence. Brachypodium was initially chosen as a model because of its phylogenetic position, which is more closely related to wheat and barley (both in the tribe Triticeae) than to rice or maize. In addition, it has the usual characteristics of a model system (rapid cycling, small stature,small genome size, ease of growth).[1] [2].
