The UK Brassica Research Community (UK-BRC) consists of a wide range of research groups, breeders and other end-users, holds annual meetings of academic and industry-based scientists, and operates a mailing list of >180 members. This website provides details of research projects, resources and interests of its members. The UK-BRC plays a prominent role in the international Brassica research community, including via the Multinational Brassica Genome Project.

The close relationship between Brassica and the reference species Arabidopsis thaliana provides exciting opportunities to translate fundamental information about gene function to understanding and manipulating crop traits, and the UK-BRC has many interactions with the UK Arabidopsis research community, including through GARNet.
