GRM 2013: Cassava product catalogue and project status -- Projects ongoing, completed, and to be continued post-2014 -- E Okogbenin

  1. 1. Cassava RI Perspectives from Crop group parallel session
  2. 2. Projects • Project 1: Improvement and evaluation of the existing cassava reference set for Africa • Project 2: Improving and deploying markers for biotic traits • Project 3: Implement MARS projects for drought tolerance • Project 4: Phenotyping cassava for drought tolerance to identify QTLs • Project 5: A Cassava Breeding Community of Practice in Africa for Accelerated Production and Dissemination of Farmer-Preferred Cassava Varieties Resistant to Pests and Diseases
  3. 3. Project Status Projects # of Activities % Completed Done Advanced progress : done by 2014 TBD Unknown 1 9 5 0 - 4 2 13 6 5 - 2 3 10 4 5 1 0 4* 10 2 5 1 1 5 16 9 4 2 1 * One activity no longer feasible; thus modified
  4. 4. Activities Not Completed Project 1 • Place SEC materials in vitro, virus index and exchange (Unknown) • Place additional germplasm in set (Unknown) • Assemble complete set at IITA and CIAT • Make available reference set to Nigeria, Tanzania & Ghana Project 2 • Markers for CBSD: BMGF project related
  5. 5. Activities not Completed – contd. Project 3 • CMD: SNP genotyping of parents for second recombination cycle (May not be necessary) Project 4 • Harvest and measurement of destructive and production traits • Joint analysis of data (Colombia and Brazil) Project 5 • MAS for CBSD – BMGF project related • SNP genotyping for S3 lines – partial completion in 2014 • Introgressing drought tolerance into superior hybrids (under gene pool improvement) – related to MARS
  6. 6. Products Ready • Microsatellite kit for reference set • Reference set • Cassava germplasm for physiological and biotic traits • Drought resistant germplasm • Two MAS developed varieties for CMD resistance combined with other traits • Four CMD resistant/CBSD tolerant varieties • Training course materials for drought tolerance • South American Drought tolerance varieties • Markers for drought tolerance • CBSD tolerant line – AR40-6 • Partial inbred genetic stocks for beta carotene, starch, CBSD Not Ready • SNP set for reference set • Finger printing SNP set • Africa: Markers for drought productivity (validation) • Phenotyping protocol for new physiological traits • South America: Markers for QTL - drought/physiological traits • SNP set for CMD resistance
  7. 7. Plans to Finish Activities • No-cost extension • Activities to continue along respective projects Work Plan modifications: • Distribution of reference set may be limited to a subset. • Controlled experiments rather than field trial more feasible than field trails for South American drought phenotyping Assumptions: • Markers for CBSD to be provided by BMGF project
  8. 8. Key activities for continuation to expand products in the Post-GCP phase • Complementary pre-breeding initiative with BMGF to enhance utilization of reference set – leading to new products with higher genetic diversity • Gene pyramiding for CMD resistance – testing genotypes with multiple resistance through the breeding pipeline • Phenotyping for second recombination products drought tolerance (MARS) and multi-environment testing in the breeding pipeline – varietal release • Phenotyping of new drought populations developed at CIAT: – gene discovery for drought tolerance and physiological traits • Heterosis – explore partial inbreds
  9. 9. Funding sources •BMGF •AGRA •Core funds of Institutes/Centers •GCP (??)
  10. 10. Data management / sharing • IBP formatted data – Crop Curator (Fernando Rojas) • Different format (Arllet Portugal) • Fingerprinting data – Chunlin He • Other considerations – public databases, AgTrials, GCP CR
