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 G4005.01.10/G4007.01
Product Common Bean Drought Reference Set
Crop/Area Beans
Type Germplasm
Description • The Common Bean Reference Sub-set: 197 accessions consisting of 81 Andean and 116 American types. •The reference set represents a critical resource for plant scientists to study new adaptative traits, discover new favorable alleles and also new parental lines for prebreeding crosses. The Reference Collection was divided into its Middle American and its Andean components. Within the Middle American gene pool the race Durango was deemed most promising for drought tolerance, and within the Andean gene pool, the race Granada was most promising. The sub-set therefore concentrated on these two races. Lines have been evaluated in detail for yield and various other traits and genotyped.
Current Use Comparative genomics studies and introduction of diversity and selected traits in common bean breeding programmes.
