GCP 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
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).

Product Number G6007.03
Product Microsatellite primers for multiple purposes in common bean
Crop/Area Beans
Type Genomic Resources
Description • Primers for over 1,500 microsatellites were designed. Sequences and protocols are available. • Microsatellites were based on 417 simple sequence repeat (SSR) loci from non-enriched genomic libraries (Blair et al., 2009b), 248 gene-based microsatellites (Blair et al. 2009c), 85 AT-rich sequences (Blair et al., 2008) and 89,000 BAC-end sequences which were screened to develop BES-SSR
Current Use Additional studies of genetic diversity; gene tagging and marker assisted selection
