FruitBreedomics 1st Annual meeting 20120208 wp3 overview of state of progress
WP3State of progress
State of progress of the ongoing tasks• Task 3.1 + US-RosBreed: – Upgrades on FlexQTLTM gave 10x reduction in computation time – Scripts to convert GenomeStudio data to Pedimap format• Task 3.2: Mapping population has generated from Bolinha (Monilinia)• Task 3.3: – SNP-scores peach mapping populations completed for 90% (9K SNP ) – Apple DNA’s isolated for 65% of germplasm, DNA-bank initiated• Task 3.4: – 15 Stakeholders & partners expressed interest to participate – 14 in apple, 7 external stakeholders;• Task 3.6: – Effect of harvest date on QTL-discovery initiated for apple texture
Milestones and Deliverables status• D3.1 (M10): -> M18 List of EU-founders & indications on their use in breeding.• D3.2 (M18) & New version of the FlexQTLTM with several new capacities and functionalities.• MS12 (M18): & Availability of genome covering SNP arrays in peach & apple• MS13 (M18): & A new version of FlexQTL capable of dealing with high marker densities.
Expected delays and problems• D3.1 (M10): -> M18 List of EU-founders & indications on their use in breeding Apple: – Delay is due to time needed for coordination and availability of qualified personal. – No technical issues. – Tasks will receive full attention from April 1st on – Topic is taken care off, delay does not affect other FB-tasks Peach: Interest of breeders too limited
Tasks to be done during the AnnualMeeting• General: – Touch base on obtained results – Tuning on the development of SNP2-array (WP7, Apple)• Task 3.3 – Phenotypic data getting in place • Data-templates & timelines, existing (& new?) data – Scheduling training workshop on PBA (M20-M24)• Task 3.4 – Look for additional participants• Task 3.6 – Tuning set-up of experiments
