Product Catalogue

The Product Catalogue is an evolving  compilation of  a diverse array of  products derived from tangible outputs of projects supported in whole or in part by the CGIAR Generation Challenge Programme.  As projects mature, more products are added. Products are listed under the specific project crop or ‘Global’.   Under each crop, you will find diverse types of products, such as  germplasm, markers, genomics resources and informatics applications.  ‘Global’ includes products  applicable to several or all crops and generally includes informatics tools and learning materials. We consider all catalogued products as useful. However, our user base is highly varied and includes upstream as well as downstream plant scientists. Not all products will be of direct interest to breeders. Consequently, a BUL (Breeding Use Level) rating has been provided to indicate the direct usefulness of products to breeders:

Breeding Use Levels
BUL Description
1 Ready to use for breeding
(I.e. predictive markers, germplasm of acceptable agronomic type containing a well-defined and characterized trait, and etc.).
2 Qualified use for breeding
(i.e germplasm in which trait genetics have not been well defined or markers that may be informative but not necessarily predictive).
3 Indirectly useful for breeding
(i.e. genomic resources from which downstream products for breeding are developed and many informatics applications).
4 Not developed for breeding, per se
(i.e. miscellaneous information as socio-economic reports).

How to use this table:

  • With the exception of BUL, you can sort by column by clickling on the title of each column
  • You can search for any term, word, or keyword by typing it into the search box above the table
  • You can export data by clicking on the CSV link on the top left-hand side of this page

Products - Cassava

  • Rice
  • An array of SNP markers for rice
  • Genomic Resources
  • 250 SNP markers developed for rice. A total of 250 PCR primers were designed, 60 in the Xa7 region on chromosome 6, 60 around Xa13 on chromosome 8, and 130 around the cluster Xa4/Xa22/Xa26 on chromosome 11; Sequences from 8 diverse Indonesian rice accessions generated for 215 primer pairs described above and there are 1720 sequences; all of the sequences from the 8 rice accessions aligned and SNPs called for all of them; information about SNP location and frequency in a limited set of indica and japonica germplasm; 125 SNP detection assays designed and carried out on 96 diverse Indonesian accessions at Genaissance Pharmaceuticals; A collection of 250 Indonesian landraces analyzed with a set of genome-wide simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers, LD measured in three genomic regions surrounding the bacterial blight resistance genes Xa7, Xa13, and the cluster of Xa4/Xa22/Xa26, single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers developed across each region by sequencing PCR products from a subset of eight landraces, and genotyped across a larger subset of accessions using a high-throughput SNP assay; SNP data used to measure the LD across each region and define the haplotype block structure found in this set of rice germplasm.
