  • 2. Overview Project 1. (TLI) Focus on objective 1 – Improve groundnut productivity for marginal environments in sub-Saharan Africa Activities 1. Confirm disease/drought resistance/tolerance sources and assess new diversity 2. Develop SNP markers for cultivated groundnut 3. Map disease resistance QTL and anchor these to the physical map 4. Use MABC to introgress disease resistance drought and disease towards MARS use in future 5. Strengthen capacity of NARS partners 6. Management and storage of data
  • 3. Summary of the deliverables Activities Deliverables 1. Validate resist sources New well characterized genotypes 1. Novel Res sources confirmed, (CSSL, Synthetics, AB) 2. Agronomic attributes of (CSSL, Synthetics, AB) & QTL 3. Pre- breeding material 4. Data base of phenotype data, 2. SNP development • Genome-wide resource of SNPs 3. Map resistance QTL & anchor to physical map 1. Phenotypic data on stress (GRD, ELS, Rust) 2. QTL and flanking markers for diseases resistance 3. Additional SSRs carrying disease resistance QTL 4. 3 regions controlling disease res anchored on physical map 4.Use MABC to introgress resistance/tolerance 1. 3 populations ready for multi-location phenotyping. 2. MABC and other advanced materials available for PVS 3. New populations generated (from new sources of res & additional QTL mapped 4. Genotypic polymorphism of parents known 5. Strengthen capacity • Scientists trained in phenotyping and use of genomic tools 6. Manage Data 1. Marker data for each disease available 2. Phenotypic data for ref set available
  • 4. Product categories Genomic resources 56% Novel Germplasm 36% Tools/proto cals 8% Portfolio: 25 products Critical areas – ABQTL (1) to be completed by Sept 2014 – New ABQTL (2) to be completed by 2015 – Mapping populations for disease resistance
  • 5. Current status • Largely delivered • Access: ICRISAT, CIRAD, Germplasm • Largely delivered (Phenotyping and AB QTL to continue) • Access: Diverse leaders- publications, data bases (ICRISAT, other DB’s) Genomic resources • Largely delivered (Phenotyping and AB QTL to continue • Access: Diverse leaders- publications, IBP Tools and process
  • 6. Strategy for Transition.. 2014 and beyond On track • AB QTL work to be completed by 09 2014 and 2nd one to be completed by 2015. Delayed • Mapping for resistance GRD, ELS, Rust • CSSL line characterisation Activity Leader 1. ABQTL work (2) CIRAD/ISRA 2. Mapping for resis ICRISAT-Malawi , NBI 3. CSSL characterization ESA ICRISAT-Malawi Supporting framework Strategy prerequisite • Use current support (GCP to 2014) Manage for results • Remedies in place • Make over of team • CRP Activities already aligned to CRP
  • 7. Resource Category Available knowledge/dat a Dissemination strategy Next steps Genomic Resources, tools and protocols Publications and supplementary data Publicly available DBs (IBP, GDMS) Institute DBs) • Authors & activity leaders to • Curate data before submission • Biological resources - (repository & IP issues) • (PI and PDC to follow up) Germplasm Diverse Genotypes Repository via ICRISAT, SIRA, CIRAD) • Review IP issues to address post project access by other actors • (PI, Activity leaders and PDC to follow up) Data management
  • 8. Horizon planning Transitioning from discovery to innovation focus Scaling up use of GCP outputs for wider outcomes • Phenotyping novel germplasm for pipeline to breeding programmes. • Genomics resources: Deployment in breeding programmes • Modeling. Improving focus of breeding activities for variable but predictable challenges. • Targeted capacity strengthening of especially NARS to promote use and benefits of investments at appropriate scale (IBP linkage.
