1 Triticeae genomics for the advancement of essential European crops TritiGen COST F&A0604 Proposal for a new COST Action: Proposer: Prof. Alan H. Schulman Head of Genomics Research, MTT Group Leader & Docent, University of Helsinki

2 TritiGen: History Initial inquiries: March 2006 Full proposal: 15 September Letter of invitation to ETGI list:26 April Preliminary proposal: 31 May Notification of selection for full proposal:12 July Invitation to present: 3 October Presentation in Brussels: 9 October Notification of Approval:2 November Estimated kickoff:April 2007

3 TritiGen… …with the goal to support development of a competitive, sustainable European agriculture based on improved key crops - wheat, barley & rye … is a network coordinating: Marker development for high resolution mapping, MAS Assessment, development & utilisation of genetic diversity Development of high-resolution mapping populations Physical map construction to accelerate map-based cloning High throughput phenotyping resources Application of transcriptomic, proteomic, metabolomic approaches Bioinformatic & sequence annotation platforms Development of new genetics tools (QTL, association genetics) Set up of a foundation for genome sequencing

4 Research centres participating in TritiGen Currently missing: Ireland, Luxembourg, Malta, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia 123 (46 ) scientists (70 labs) have given details, + 9 COST-neighbour scientists (7 institutions)1
