The EU project “Linking genetic resources, genomes and phenotypes of Solanaceous crops (G2P-SOL)” (www.g2p-sol.eu) lasted almost 6 years, from March 2016 to December 2021. Over 50,000 accessions of the four major Solanaceous crops have been catalogued by collecting, in a single database, passport, phenotypic and image data available at worldwide genebanks hosting Solanaceae collections. Over 40,000 of these accessions have been genotyped, and the data have been used to construct core collections representing the genetic and phenotypic variation of the four species. The core collections have been subjected to high density genotyping/resequencing and phenotypic characterization (agronomic/quality traits, metabolomics, tolerance to biotic and abiotic stresses) at multiple locations. The data are being used for GWAS analysis and identification of novel loci controlling such traits. G2P-SOL has also generated/characterized novel prebreeding populations, carrying traits from each crop’s wild genepools. These data are being stored on a dedicated database with data analysis capabilities.
The aim of the workshop is to present the multi-omic resource generated by G2P-SOL, as well as discuss the path forward with leading experts in the field of genetic resources.
The workshop will take place via teleconference on Mon-Thu December 13-15, from 14 to 17.15 Central European Time. Registration must be completed by Friday, Dec 10 (https://forms.gle/16ij5HeowqqAA7me8). It is free and is required to receive the participation link. The program updates and speakers bios are available on http://www.g2p-sol.eu/G2P-SOL-Final-Workshop.html
