Brachypodium distachyon (purple false brome) is an annual grass from the family Poaceae (formerly known as the Gramineae) and is endemic to the Mediterranean and Middle East.

Scientific interest in Brachypodium distachyon arises from its membership of the same subfamily of the Poaceae as the cereal crops wheat, rye and barley, and the forage and turf grasses (subfamily Pooidae). Economically important members of this subfamily, notably wheat, have large and complex genomes, so Brachypodium distachyon serves as a valuable model organism for this taxonomic group.

Brachypodon distachyon has a haploid chromosome number of 5, containing 270 Mb with 30,000 protein-coding genes. The diploid inbred line Bd21 was sequenced.
