Brassica : Harvesting the Genome, Diversity and Products

8.

Status of Brassica research programmes around the world

Overview:

Brassica research is characterised by its diversity of experimental materials, trait biology and end-uses. The common thread is access to well defined genomic resources and close relationship with the model plant Arabidopsis.  Throughout the world the research communities comprise public and privately funded programmes, with a long history of interaction and technology transfer between  public sector researchers and breeding companies.

Communication:

The www.brassica.info website has been established as the common portal for compiling information about Brassica species, crop and genome

The genome gateway sites have also been established at http://brassica.bbsrc.ac.uk/ and http://www.niab.go.kr

The brassica.info e-mail list has been established to encourage communication and discussion amongst the international Brassica research community, and currently has over X members world-wide.

International Brassica meetings (ISHS Symposia on Brassicas) have been held as follows:

1994:  Lisbon, Portugal 1994

1997:  Rennes, France, 1997

2000:  Wellesbourne, UK, 2000

2004:  Daejon, Korea, 2004

2008:   next meeting planned in Norway, 2006

International Crucifer Genetics Workshops have been held concurrent with these meetings.

In addition, Crucifer Genetics Workshops have been held regularly since  ?

1998:  Quebec, Canada

2002:  Davis, USA

2006:  Wageningen, The Netherlands

1999: 10th Rapeseed Congress, Canberra, Australia
