Diversity Thematic group

Full title

Genetic Diversity Gap Filling, Taxonomy and Characterization

Objectives

  • Ensure the secured conservation of the entire Musa genepool by assessing the diversity conserved and filling gaps, with an emphasis on threatened material.
  • Enhance the value of Musa genetic resources through effective collaborative characterization.

Outputs

  • The genetic diversity is assessed, comprehensively characterized,
  • The taxonomy is harmonized 
  • Gaps in diversity are identified and filled in ex situ collections.

Workplan

The group focuses its attention on two salient topics:

                    A. Diversity:  the missing taxa and how to recover them (priority of future material collecting)
                    B. Characterisation: how to complete and improve the techniques

A. Diversity - missing taxa and how to recover them: Recommended actions, in order of priority:

 

Where

What

How

Who/Funding

1.

Triangle:

East Kalimantan-Malukku-Lesser Sunda  (+ Philippines (Negrito areas) for more African plantain cultivars)

Unexplored wild AA spp./ varieties and edible AA; basic African plantain cultivars; other AAB?; other taxa -Western range of M. ac. spp.. banksii; M. schizocarpa; Australimusa and its Fe’i.

Exploration

  • 2 experienced Musa taxonomists +  national counterpar
  • Proposal of Bioversity (to Trust etc)

2.

Pemba-Madagascar

Wild AA; edible AA?

Exploration

  • Connect to existing activities by e.g. IITA, CIRAD;
  • followed by priority (5)

3.

Northeast India

a) Un/underexplored wild taxa

b) Collected wild/ edible AA and BB

a) Exploration

b) Send to ITC

  •  NBPGR followed by priority (5)

4

Sumatra-Pen. Malaysia- Thailand

Complex of AA ssp sumatrana,truncata, malaccensis (kedah form)

Collect more specimen for clarification

  • National taxonomists, (with additional earmarked support from Trust?);
  • followed by priority (5)

5

Collections in ecology conform to explored environments

  •  Explored Eumusa and Calllimusa (China, Borneo)
  • Harvest of 1,2,3,4

Long-term operation at collections

  • 2 experienced Musa taxonomists +  national counterparts, examining said collections
  • Proposal of Bioversity (to Trust etc)

While exploration/collection in Myanmar is recognised as of high potential, the lasting unfavourable conditions prevent from planning any action.

B. Characterisation - how to complete and improve the techniques:

On Morphological characterisation

1.     The Hierarchical Identification System, should be tried out down to the Subgroup level. The Reference Collection should be used for that purpose in some 3-4 field collections with international vocation (on a voluntary base?).

2.       A Software should be build in the MGIS for the detection of any inconsistency, among the completed Descriptor Lists sent in by the curators, for each accession of the Reference Collection, and for each descriptor qualification (i.e. the corresponding qualification number). MGIS should signal the respective problems to the curators, who should try to settle the cases in community (e.g. through intensive email correspondence with cc to the MusaNet Expert Committee).

On Molecular characterisation

3.       An agreed upon standardised ‘Finger printing’ technique with microsatellites should be applied to each accession of the Reference Collection with standardised techniques to share results through the platform, by the specialised laboratories of CIRAD (A. d’Hont) and of the Institute of Experimental Botany (J. Dolezel) and NRCB. By comparing the results, these labs should produce the basic molecular characterisation which would complement the morphological one (cfr 2), thus leading to the definitive characterisation of the subgroups (East Highland banana and plantains).

Evaluation Thematic group

Full title

Germplasm Evaluation and Use

Objectives

  • Enhance the value of Musa genetic resources through effective collaborative evaluation and pre-breeding efforts.
  • Set priorities for evaluation research, breeding, and use of Musa genetic resources, ensuring critical links with the Regional Networks.

Output

The use of Musa genetic diversity is maximized through user-oriented evaluation.

Workplan

Scope: who are the users: primary users, end users
  • Breeders (specific materials) – interested in specific traits
  • Farmers (broader pools) – interested in types adapted to local conditions
  • Researchers/ scientists – interested in the entire genepool
Global traits:
  • Fusarium
  • BBTV
  • Black leaf streak (BLS)
  • abiotic/biotic drought
  • shelf-life
  • dry-matter
  • vitamins and minerals
  • agronomic – height, yield and finger drop
  • Do we need mass in vitro screening techniques?  Methodologies exists but need validation in field (blind test) and therefore collaborate with ProMusa
  • Testing in places like EMBRAPA, Wageningen and links to the field. Note from Jeff Daniels: this was mentioned mostly in the context of a possible Global Foc Screening Centre using methodologies given in Miguel Dita's presentation
Regional traits:
  • What type of evaluation would be needed? E.g. West Africa – cooking banana, weevils, BBTV, drought, starch content. 
  • Have all plantains been evaluated for these traits?
  • Need different methodologies than classical breeding e.g. drought evaluation is very complex
  • The evaluation needs to include the global community involving regional and national centres.
  • There is a role for ProMusa and MusaNet in capacity building.
Other remarks:
  • Fusarium testing: start with the information in MGIS (from IMTP) and identify partners working on this (private sector, ProMusa, regional networks). 
  • Mass screening techniques and IMTP approach: consider feasibility and costs. First step might be a workshop to better understand needs.
  • Susceptible plants/ or negative characters- need to be less biased in collecting for new traits- need to correlate molecular diversity to phenotypic diversity, so that targeted collecting for specific traits can be undertaken.

Conservation Thematic group

Full title

Conservation Partnership and safe movement of germplasm

Objectives

  • Strengthen the capacity of partners for the cost-effective long-term conservation and management of germplasm collections
  • Facilitate safe access to useful Musa genetic resources in improvement programmes and by other users.

Outputs

The entire gene pool is conserved in perpetuity by a network of well-managed and rationalized collections and the global system for the safe exchange of germplasm is strengthened.

Workplan

Conservation: On farm conservation, Ex situ conservation, In field conservation, ITC and Seed project.

Issues:
  • Today mainly ITC complemented by field conservation.  Do we need on farm conservation?  It can add value, knowledge, low cost but not safe.  We may need a project to look into this.
  • In vitro and cryopreservation for all accessions might be ideal but could be very costly and have time constraints.
  • Field genebanks: who is conserving what and where?  This is a national responsibility.  We need to clarify how this should be done and define the links with ITC and field collections.
  • Most of the time, material is exchanged without SMTAs, except for ITC, and with very little characterisation data.
  • We need to clarify quality control for the safe exchange of materials between field collections to field collections and between field collections to ITC.  This is a serious issue – how to have safe movement all around the world.
  • Propose to update the BSV guidelines for virus indexing (the last version dates of 1996) as a priority and possibly for all other viruses.
  • Need to link suppliers to users/ recipients, especially if via 2nd party like ITC.
  • Need to also link with MGIS as suppliers want to know where their materials is going.
  • Regional and national collections strategies need to be linked to ITC for data quality and traceability and verification many years later.
  • Most national and regional collections do not have any status, no “labelling” indicating these are national collections.There are a lot of duplicates and the collections are not used for public awareness like in botanic gardens. 
  • Good documentation is linked to materials and information available.
  • Government support: how can government provide long-term support to field collections?  How can the system help these collections?
  • May need some labelling, legal and quality control system.
Priorities
  1. Safe movement - improve the indexing/ guidelines.
  2. Global partnerships and how to label collections.
  3. Establish feedback mechanism for MGIS.
  4. Update the list of national and regional collections and produce an inventory of what is available.
  5. ITC to proactively offer to distribute accessions to collections with specific interest for specific regions.
  6. Develop a platform to exchange information between collections with photos and images.
  7. Develop guidelines for field collection management - standardise quality control.
  8. Develop priority list of accessions for specific collections.
Additional points:
  • Screen-house conservation might be considered as an alternative strategy.
  • Agree on how many duplicates should be kept.
  • Best practices are already on-line (see knowledge base: http://cropgenebank.sgrp.cgiar.org/
  • Need to discuss further how to maintain consistent labelling.
  • Compiling and making visible what has been done so far, should this be part of information group role? Outreach work- how to make this visible?
  • Platform for exchange between curators: a mechanism for sharing information.  Information is not shared between curators.  It relies on individual pro-activity and that is why we created MusaNet to develop a community of best practice.
  • There are a lot of good intentions but we need to clearly identify what did not work so well and learn from these lessons (e.g. 250 accessions in a TRUST project- and 80% were duplicates).
  • We should be able to collaborate and use the tools developed in the last 5 years.
  • Need to have some of regional collections specialised on a particular part of the diversity.
Proposal for a rationalisation project (across thematic groups):
  1. Need to make an inventory of what information is already available, and what has been done.
  2. Develop a list of probable duplicates.
  3. Communicate this information between collections.

Priorities for collective actions

Part 1

1. Safe movement - improve the indexing/ guidelines.

4. Update the list of national and regional collections and produce an inventory of what is available.

7. Develop guidelines for field collection management - standardise quality control.

Part 2

2. Global partnerships and how to label collections.

3. Establish feedback mechanism for MGIS.

5. ITC to proactively offer to distribute accessions to collections with specific interest for specific regions.

6. Develop a platform to exchange information between collections with photos and images.

8. Develop priority list of accessions for specific collections.
