1 High Performance Networking in Agricultural Research Marco van den Berg William G. Padolina International Rice Research Institute http://irri.org

2 Exciting times in rice research Bioinformatics Simultaneous revolutions in biology, communications, and computational power Remote computational power generates new generation of questions and applications Vast arrays of data generated worldwide Remote data storage and analysis capacities universally accessible Global Rice Science Partnership

3 Omics Genomics, Proteomics, etc. 2005 - Rice genome sequence published 2006 - SUB1 gene identified 2009 - Swarna-SUB1 variety developed 2010 - Released to farmers 2011 - Start sequencing 10,000 varieties (500 TeraBytes raw data 4 TB net data) 2012 - Drought-tolerant gene 201? - Sequenced >108,000 rice varieties

4 National Institute of Agrobiological Sciences/Institute of the Society for Techno-innovation of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Japan The Institute for Genomic Research USA Chinese Academy of Sciences China INRA-URGV France Cirad-Amis France The University of Arizona USA Academia Sinica Taiwan National Cheng Kung University Taiwan National Yang-Ming University University of Delhi India Indian Agricultural Research Institute Rutgers University USA National Institute of Agricultural Science and Technology Republic of Korea Rice Gene Discovery Unit Kasetsart University Thailand Centro de Genomica e Fitomelhoramento Brazil John Innes Centre UK Washington University USA University of Wisconsin USA Center for Information Biology and DNA Data Bank of Japan National Institute of Genetics Japan National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology Japan National Institute of Agrobiological Sciences Japan Medical Research Institute Japan Biological Informatics Consortium Japan Cornell University USA Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory USA McGill University Canada York University Canada International Rice Research Institute Philippines Graduate School of Natural Sciences Nagoya City University Japan Brookhaven National Laboratory USA Rice Sequencing Consortium (2005)

5 DNA Data Transfer Building a bigger picture with advanced communications links Dr. Detlef Weigel (Max Planck Institute): This is a milestone that is key for the next phase of exploiting the genes that have been accumulated over millennia in the many rice strains available at IRRI and in gene banks at other rice breeding institutes worldwide Dr Ken McNally (IRRI) Tens of gigabytes of data generated in the initial study were shared with collaborators and published on external databases to make them available to researchers around the world. Data volumes will rise dramatically in the future

6 Global Rice Information Gateway Real-time crop information medium-term supply and demand outlook policy briefs comprehensive rice data sets at all levels Rice monitoring and forecasting system for each country will be developed by combining techniques such as satellite-based remote sensing with weather and crop modeling, and econometric modeling.

7 Heavy Traffic European Space Agency ENVISAT 2011: 200 scenes x 60 MB = 12 GB 2012: 15,000 scenes = 900 GB

8 First Mile = The Farmer Connecting farmers with research Site Specific Nutrient Management Use the farmer as the sensor Simple, local language interface Web & Voice Operational in Philippines, Android in Beta test Next: Indonesia, China, Bangladesh In development: Crop Manager

9 Precision agriculture services to poor farmers Service Platform R&D Decision Support Tools Web / Phone Tools to protect investment Crop Doctor Pest Management Loans Savings Farmer Guidelines Crop Insurance Input Supply Tools for Wise Investments Nutrient Manager Crop Manager Research Farmer Participatory Testing Consolidation of Knowledge Verification SimulationsModeling Localization

10 Agricultural Research Funding Falls Short IRRI Budget 1960-2009 000 US$ 2009
