  2. 2. Outline Product Catalogue Summary GCP Transition Checklist • Not Finished by Project End • To Be delivered by Project End • Recently Finished, Ready for Catalog
  3. 3. Product Catalogue Summary – Cowpea Informative markers available • Fusarium resistance • Drought tolerance (staygreen, yield, biomass) • Maturity • Striga resistance • Root-knot nematode resistance • Flower and foliar thrips resistance • Bacterial blight resistance • Macrophomina (ashy stem blight) resistance Genomic resources • Physical map (BACs) • Microarray chip • SSR marker kit • Consensus genetic map (~1100 SNPs, 11 RILs) • Genetic map (527 SNPs, 1 RIL)
  4. 4. Product Catalog Summary – Cowpea Informatics/Application Tools • HarvEST:Cowpea (Windows browser) • BreedIt SNP Selector (input parents, cM, trait positions) • ParentChecker (to infer RIL parent genotypes) • KBio Converter (to change reference strand) Germplasm • Reference set (370 accessions) • 20 drought tolerant reference lines for West Africa
  5. 5. GCP Transition Checklist – TL1 Activity 1: Develop MAGIC population Activity 2: Develop genomic resources in support of marker-assisted breeding Activity 3: Employ MARS and MABC to develop improved breeding lines Activity 4: Capacity Building Activity 5: Curate and Store Phase I and II Data
  6. 6. GCP Transition Checklist Activity 1: Develop MAGIC population • By December 2015, need funds to advance and bulk F8 Activity 3: Employ MARS and MABC to develop improved breeding lines • MARS, by December 2015, need funds for phenotyping (two years, 4 populations, 1 per location) • MABC, by December 2015, need funds for phenotyping (two years, 8 populations, 2 per location) Not Finished by Project End (2014)
  7. 7. GCP Transition Checklist Activity 2: Develop genomic resources in support of marker-assisted breeding • RIL population seed and SNP data Activity 3: Employ MARS and MABC to develop improved breeding lines • QTL for aphid resistance published To be Delivered by Project End (2014)
  8. 8. GCP Transition Checklist Activity 4: Capacity Building • Training African students and breeders Activity 5: Curate and Store Phase I and II Data • Finish formatting and delivering phenotype and genotype datasets To be delivered by project end (2014)
  9. 9. GCP Transition Checklist Activity 2: Develop genomic resources in support of marker-assisted breeding • ~1000 mapped KASP SNPs • Updated consensus map (11 RILs) • List of 100-400 customized SNP markers developed for 4 MARS and 8 MABC breeding populations • SNP marker data used for MARS and MABC breeding decisions Recently finished, ready for catalog
