OBJ. 4 MARKER-ASSISTED BREEDING PIPELINE IMPLEMENTATION Year 2 Deliverables, Challenges, Year 3 goals
Goal What Impact Integrate modern genomics tools with traditional breeding approaches, systematically (8-stage MAB Pipeline) Enrich breeding material for favorable genetics to efficiently increase likelihood and accuracy of identifying top performers
What To whom Year 2 Deliverables Impact Two Jewels (fast-tracked genetic tests) in routine use WSU apple and sweet cherry breeding programs est. $80K saved from 2011 cherry seedling culling alone!
What Year 2 Deliverables Community Breeders Page - regular article in Newsletter To whom Community Breeders Impact Not evaluated but represents early start on Yr 4 tech transfer MAB Pipeline Nov10 apple Jewel use Feb11 Pipeline in action May11 peach Jewel use Aug11 cherry Jewel use Nov11
Moving breeding programs forward together, keeping all on same page -Requires success stories but also consistent & constant advice Challenges and Plan for tackling Some enacted solutions: -Community Breeders Page -coordinated master datafiles -much involved in other Team activities...need more people on Team
What To whom Planned Year 3 Deliverables Intended Impact Routine MAB Pipelining by Demonstration Breeders -First: fast-tracked markers into routine use -Soon after: New QTLs from PBA with genome scans Demonstration Breeders (Yr 3) other breeders (Yr 4) Success stories & experiences useful for Yr 4 tech transfer to all U.S. Rosaceae breeders.
OBJ. 5 EXTENSION Year 2 Deliverables, Challenges, Year 3 goals
Goals Breeders adoption of Marker-Assisted Breeding Allied Scientists - utilization of newly generated science based knowledge, tools and databases Industry better understanding of the power of DNA- informed breeding leads to new ways to jointly accelerate commercialization and impact of new cultivars
What To whom Year 2 Deliverables Impact Project-wide content developed, disseminated and undertaken Project participants & stakeholders Stakeholders gain knowledge of project activities and deliverables. 78/130 recipients opened the Nov 2011 newsletter and Community breeders said: Stats: in 2011 the RosBREED website was visited by 2,242 unique visitors, from 79 countries. Since creation, 5,541 visits from US - ALL 50 states circulate to a wider audience it builds a sense of community RosBREED newsletter stands out among other similar project newsletters

What To whom Obj 5: Year 2 Deliverables Impact Assist in surveys - Socio Economics Team grower mail in surveys and clicker surveys at grower meetings Market intermediaries and growers Growers help identify valuable Jewels and are more knowledgeable of their local breeding programs
Video content obtained, free computer software programs for editing existing videos is limited Experiment with softwares that have been used successfully in other extension venues Obtain participation of a high percentage of Rosaceae Community Breeders at the MAB in Action Workshop Hold Workshop the day prior to the ASHS meeting in Miami; generate interest in the Workshop through publicizing success stories Challenges and Plan for Tackling Computer Demo: RosBREED Videos
What To whom Planned Year 3 Deliverables Intended Impact RosBREED Participatory Workshop: Marker-Assisted Breeding in Action, 30 July 2012 promote, prepare & conduct Demonstration and Community breeders Comprehension by breeders of available knowledge, technologies and software for conducting routine MAB; application of MAB in their breeding programs Visit breeding programs on request to share RosBREEDs deliverables
What To whom Planned Year 3 Deliverables Intended Impact Disseminate RosBREED deliverables and communicate with stakeholders through the use of published materials and participation in meetings Rosaceae breeders, allied scientists, industry Breeders: breed as efficiently as possible Allied scientists: use newly generated science-based knowledge, tools, databases Industry: interact effectively with local breeding programs, understand power of DNA-informed breeding
