  • 1. Capacity BuildingPerspectivesGRM 21-25 September 2011
  • 2. Areas of support Genotyping support Training Communities of Practice (CoPs)
  • 3. Genotyping support : Strategy Promote the adoption and use of MB in NARSbreeding programmes Commissioned research Breeding applications Support for PhD students at Africa Centre forCrop Improvement (ACCI) and West AfricaCentre for Crop Improvement (WACCI)
  • 4.  Crops with platform developed: (Cassava, Chickpea,Cowpea, Rice, Sorghum) Breeding MABC MARS development QTL pyramiding Development of other types of populations Pre-breeding Fingerprinting Migration to SNPs QTL mappingGenotyping Support: Capacitybuilding for NARS partners
  • 5.  Crop targets: Bean, Cassava, Chickpea, Cowpea,Groundnut, Maize, Rice, Sorghum, Wheat Application of GCP products Application of non-GCP products Validation of on-going work (collaboration with GCPpartners)Genotyping support : ACCI –WACCI PhD students
  • 6. Areas of support Genotyping support Training CoP
  • 7. Capacity Building: Strategy Tools to carry out analysis of data within project Adoption of IBP tools (users cases and CoP) Maximum of efficiency Training target

  • 9.  Year 1 : Training introduction (length TBD) Year 2 and 3 : Advanced training on specific tools Priority setting of partners (surveys) Allowed partners to be trained à la carte to better fitthe need of their programme (parallel session) E-leaning material to complement the trainingmodulesCapacity Building:Feedback from partnersOrganisation of training programme
  • 10.  Involvement in MB activities The practitioners : breeders, young scientists, technicians Structure of NARS Staff constitution Ensure spill-over : critical mass in institution Senior scientists not to be excluded totally: Technology and concepts new to some of them Some of them are doing the workCapacity Building:Feedback from partnersTarget of training programme
  • 11.  Capacity built at personal level with scientists Main challenge in the capacity of the institutions Disbursement of the funding Monitoring of the projectCapacity Building for leadership:Feedback from partners
  • 12. Phenotyping support to partners Implementation of handheld tablets in NARSprogrammes Support for implementation of DB at institutionlevel Support for implementation of DB at project level
  • 13. Areas of support Genotyping support Training CoP
  • 14. CoP : Achieved : Rice in the Mekong Cassava in Africa Data Managers Chickpea Cowpea and Soybean SorghumEstablishment Cooking : Bean Maize Wheat
  • 15. CoP : To be enhanced: Rice in Asia Rice in Africa Cassava in Africa Energizing the community Sustaining the communityImplementationLearning together with help of skilled people
