  1. 1. MSc. Alice Brunazzi Supervisor: Prof. Mario Enrico Pè PhD Programme Agrobiosciences – Genomics and Crop Science alice.brunazzi@sssup.it Exploiting Wild Wheat Relatives for food security through the identification of genes involved in adaptation to climate change
  2. 2. Scientific context and state of the art Objectives and scientific hypotheses Methods and roadmap Results Outline
  3. 3. Scientific context and state of the art 1. Climate change is one of the most urgent and important challenges of our time 2. We must produce plants able to thrive in new climates, with changing biotic and abiotic pressures Diversity Natural Populations Cultivated Species Elite Cultivars
  4. 4. Scientific context and state of the art 3.92Gb
  5. 5. Objectives and scientific hypotheses Evaluate the genetic variability present in a large collection of T. urartu populations sampled from different regions throughout the Fertile Crescent. • using genotyping- by- sequencing technology for the purposes of discovering and genotyping SNPs molecular • relating environmental data to genetic diversity data through landscape genomics for the discovery of adaptive alleles geographical • in situ and ex situ for the evaluation of T. urartu fitness variation and identifying QTL for favorable characters phenotypical
  6. 6. Methods and roadmap Plant material Plant materials consist of different populations of Triticum urartu L. representing the whole set of collected T. urartu accessions available GIS analysis • DIVA- GIS 7.5 • QGIS 2.4.0 coupled with BioClim Data Field experiment •The first year field experiment is mostly dedicated to seeds multiplication for each accession •Sowed December 2014 at CRIBE Genotyping-by-Sequencing approach Genotyping by sequencing is based on high-throughput next-generation sequencing of genomic subsets targeted by restriction enzymes
  7. 7. Results Collection assembly and field set up Country Number of accessions Armenia 20 Iran 18 Iraq 73 Jordan 6 Lebanon 110 Syria 45 Turkey 136 Unknown 20 428 accessions 68109251
