Mogens Støvring Hovmøller, Annemarie F Justesen, Chris K Sørensen, Sajid Ali, Mehran Patpour, Yan-Yun Chen, Tine Thach, Julian R Algaba, Poul Lassen, Jens G Hansen Session 2: Scandinavian Partnerships that have Advanced the BGRI Denmark's investment in the Global Rust Reference Center (GRRC)
  2. 2. Outline •  Facilities: People, space, equipment and ressources •  GRRC aims and mission -  Management: surveillance, ’early-warning’, on-line dissemination of results, detection and maintenance of pathogen genetic resources, etc. -  Training: International researchers and students -  Research: epidemiology, evolutionary biology, genetics •  Conclusions

  13. 13. GRRC aims and mission: Global Rust Reference Center (GRRC) established in 2008 on request from CIMMYT, ICARDA and the BGRI Management (surveillance, ’early-warning’, genetic stock isolates) •  Getting alive pathogen samples: Quarantine facility which can recieve live samples of wheat rust from any country year round (in collaboration with national and regional labs) •  Purify and maintain genetic stocks: Keep pathogen genetic ressources to assist resistance breeding and research •  Data management: Establish efficient (online) tools •  Training of students and cientists in wheat rust pathology

  21. 21. Conclusions •  Global Rust Reference Center is running and expanding – current emphasis on yellow (stripe) rust and stem rust •  Significant new investments since start in 2008 (Danish & international funding of research, and Aarhus University investments in facilities) •  Isolate stock collections expanding •  Wheat Rust Toolbox provide rapid online dissemination of results => feed into several other “information systems” •  New methodologies for both host and pathogen phenotyping in progress (quantitative level) •  The wheat rusts: Sustained efforts needed – recent improvements may quickly become lost
