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

  • Cassava
  • Training course materials on phenotyping
  • Training Materials
  • Training course : phenotyping and water deficit. A ooklet of the course, distributed to participants with copy to GCP; CD rom with all power point presentations, conclusions of the course and spreadsheets for calculating environmental data and soil water balance. Distributed to participants with copy to GCP; six A4 pages presenting techniques (measurements of plant temperature, of evaporative demand, of soil water content, of intercepted radiation, calculation of evapotranspiration); The training course aimed at providing participants with theoretical and practical elements for these choices. Twenty three scientists (level : PhD or master) participated to the course, 6 from Africa, 6 from south Asia, 4 from east Asia, four from Latin America and 3 from Europe. The latter were participants to ongoing GCP projects which received no financial support from the GCP. The course lasted 8 working days (from 3 to 12 July 2006) and the time was split into three parts of similar durations (i) lectures, aimed at providing and discussing the theoretical frameworks, (ii) practical sessions in the greenhouse or in the field aimed at a direct contact with the tools involved in phenotyping, (iii) computer sessions in which each participant could work on practical examples and directly test methods of analysis and reasoning. The course consisted in two sessions : "Characterising the plant environment and the stress" with lecures, a practical experience of measurements in greenhouse and field and computer sessions, and "Assessing phenotypes : trait evaluation" with lectures, a field session and two days of computer sessions.
