Secale cereale, rye, is an important grain crop of family Poaceae. It grows well under various environmental conditions. It is cold hardy and an important crop in central Europe. Rye flour is used in bread making along with wheat flour which improves the flavor and the nutritional value of the bread.

It is a source of several genes conferring disease resistance and salt tolerance for crop plants. It is known to inhibit weed growth. Triticale is a hybrid of rye and wheat which was developed to combine grain quality, productivity, and disease resistance of wheat with the vigor and hardiness of rye. It has a large genome size of about 9120 Mb. Whole genome sequencing has not been attempted in this plant though large scale ESTs are available.

Nine genetic maps are available in Map Viewer. Detailed information for the maps is available in the BioProject database.
