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

Chickpea DaRT markers for drought Informative Markers Two DaRT markers associated with the carbon isotope discrimination (Δ13C) trait under terminal drought prone conditions. Δ13C has been shown to be one of the best options to estimate transpiration efficiency under drought conditions. Contact: L. Krishnamurthy, ICRISAT, Patancheru, India

Cowpea Drought tolerant cowpea checks for West Africa Germplasm Drought tolerant breeding lines selected for drought tolerance in three west African conuntries. Burkina Faso, three early-maturing lines (Mouride, IT85F-3139, and Yacine) and two medium-maturing lines (IT96D-610 and IT97K-207-15) constantly showed higher performance under drought conditions through...

Groundnuts Wild introgression chromosome segment substitution lines for groundnut Germplasm Chromosome segment substitution lines developed with Fleur 11 crossed with the amphidiploid (A. ipaenesis x A. duranensis). Evaluated under drought conditions by ISRA (Senegal), ICRISAT (Niamey, Hyderabad) early leaf spot (Senegal, Malawi), late leaf spot (Hyderabad, Malawi) rosette (Malawi). Contact: Emmanuel Monyo, ICRISAT, Malawi

Groundnuts A collection of Bolivian groundnut landraces Germplasm A collection of Bolivia with new accessions imported from USDA (375 accessions) and others collected in the Southern Bolivia (Chaco Boliviano) Contact: Antonio Gandarillas, Promotion and Research of Andean Products (Proinpa) Foundation, La Paz, Bolivia

Rice Salt tolerant introgression lines Germplasm BRRI dhan28-Saltol lines with clean backgrounds by using donor FL378. Contact: Dr. Zeba I. Seraj, University of Dhaka, Dhaka, Bangladesh

Rice Markers for reproductive stage salt tolerance in rice Informative markers One fine-mapped reproductive stage tolerance QTL from Boilam background with flanking SNP markers: Contact: Zeba I Seraj, University of Dhaka, Dhaka, Bangladesh

Rice Markers for locus accounting for interspecific sterility in rice Informative markers Confirmed SSR markers for the S1 locus conferring male sterility in interspecific crosses (Oryza sativa X O. glaberrima). These were determined at the peak of the segregation distortion showing clear polymorphism between all O. sativa and O. glaberrima parents. Markers recommended for marker-assi...

Rice Markers for drought tolerance QTLs in lowland rice. Informative markers SNP markers for three large-effect QTLs (DTY3.1, DTY2.1, DTY2.2) for grain yield under lowland drought stress in the background of mega-varieties IR64 and Swarna and QTLs/regions on chromosome 1 (RM 212-RM12233) showing an effect in multiple genetic backgrounds, Swarna, IR64, and MTU1010. Contact: Arvind Kumar, IRRI, Los Banos, The Philippines

Rice Drought tolerant rice introgression lines. Germplasm IR64 introgressed lines with four, three, and two confirmed drought tolerance QTL combination. Contact: Arvind Kumar, IRRI, Los Banos, The Philippines

Rice Drought tolerant rice introgression lines in Vandana background. Germplasm Vandana introgressed lines developed with a major QTL for drought, qDTY12.1. Contact: Arvind Kumar, IRRI, Los Banos, The Philippines

Rice Rice NILs developed for drought tolerance Germplasm Near-isogenic lines for major QTLs for drought tolerance,qDTY12.1 and qDTY4.1. Contact: Arvind Kumar, IRRI, Los Banos, The Philippines

Rice Rice breeding lines for drought tolerance in agronomically acceptable backgrounds. Germplasm Breeding lines evaluated from drought tolerance in multi-locational trials. Four breeding lines released as varieties for cultivation in different provinces of India: in Tamil Nadu, PMK3; in Orissa and Jharkhand, Sahbhagi dhan; in Chhattisgarh, Indira Barani dhan 1; and in Uttar Pradeshm, Shusk Sa...
