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||A diversity analysis of the GCP reference collection for common bean|
|Description|| A study of genetic diversity, seed size associations and population structure of a core collection of 604 genotypes of common bean. CIAT previously worked with a larger set of 1400 genotypes that constituted the Phaseolus vulgaris core collection (Tohme et al., 1995). Morphological and biochemical data on this set are available via the isa.ciat.cgiar.org/urg website. From the core collection a subset was identified, representing about 40% of the original core collection, and constituting the reference collection. This subset was subjected to a more rigorous study of genetic diversity using microsatellites.|
|Current Use||Trait identification of a germplasm collection of more manageable size; association mapping|
