Ancient DNA typing indicates that the “new” glume wheat of early Eurasian agriculture is a cultivated member of the Triticum timopheevii group

Abstract:

We used polymerase chain reactions specific for the wheat B and G genomes with nine accessions of the “new” glume wheat (NGW), a type of cultivated wheat that was present across western Asia and Europe during the Neolithic and Bronze Ages but which apparently died out before the end of the 1st millennium BC.
