THE STATE-OF-THE-ART:

THE STATE-OF-THE-ART: METHODOLOGIES AND TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE IDENTIFICATION, CONSERVATION AND USE OF PGRFA was that there was only “a very limited possibility to sample many variants for PGRFA characterization”. Today, with improvements in technology, especially with regard to high throughput platforms for DNA extraction, amplifying and visualizing DNA (and RNA) fragments, with sequencing DNA fragments (and whole genomes), significantly enhanced computing capacity (data storage and analysis) and the suite of custom analytical software, it has become routine to characterize large numbers of accessions for polymorphisms (differences in sequences) at thousands of DNA loci across the genome. 1 Another area of great progress since 1995 is the identification of conserved linear order of genes on chromosomes, a phenomenon known as synteny. This has been established not only between closely related species but also with more distant taxons and even between species that differ by large differences in genome sizes. Synteny has now been documented for many taxons in such families as the Fabaceae, Poaceae, Solanaceae and Brassicaceae. These findings have provided the impetus for the investment of a significant amount of effort in comparative genomics with the goal of leveraging gene sequence information from model species for the identification of genes in taxons other than the model species. Microsynteny (similarity between taxons in the ordering of nucleotide sequences along the same chromosome) has only become measurable with the availability of copious amounts of genome sequence data that are now available in the public domain. The demonstrated instances of macrosynteny (similarity between taxons in the ordering of large numbers of genes along the same chromosome) suggest therefore that there are ancestral genomic segments conserved across many taxons. The implication is that molecular markers identified in those segments could be used in genone characterizations even across the different taxons. Of course, the utility of synteny will always be subject to the influences of chromosome rearrangements. 2 In general, the increased understanding of, and the enhanced ability to study, genetic diversity within species, populations and genepools with respect to distribution and structure have been key developments since the first SoW report. It is now established that nucleotide sequence polymorphism provide valuable information for understanding and deploying genetic diversity for crop improvement. The utility of these polymorphisms, as molecular markers, is even enhanced when the polymorphism occurs within a target gene (yielding functional markers). Representative examples are presented below. A3.3 Advances in biotechnology relevant to PGRFA conservation and use The initial applications of molecular biology in the characterization of plant genomes included single gene sequencing, the development and use of restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) markers and low-density dotblot types of DNA arrays (or northern blots). The state of knowledge initially also favoured the one-gene, one-phenotype paradigm. All of these were in place at the time of the first SoW report but were quickly supplanted by wholegenome sequencing, widespread use of molecular genetic markers based on PCR, the single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers, and medium-density arrays (for gene discovery and function elucidation). Currently, comparative whole genome sequencing (using multiple related species), extremely high-density genotyping (involving re-sequencing of individuals) and whole-genome arrays for monitoring genomewide transcription, alternative (or differential) splicing, are but a few of the examples of new molecular biology tools that are revolutionizing the depth and breadth of genome analysis of crop germplasm. Also, the one-gene, one-phenotype paradigm is giving way to a new philosophy of a dynamic genome responding globally to developmental pathways and environmental signals. 3 Speed, scale and size are the parameters that are most impacted upward by technological advances. Speed or throughput has increased significantly in many diverse activities ranging from DNA extraction, through polymerase chain reactions to microarray transcriptome profiling. Scale of approach has also increased significantly as exemplified by the numbers of molecular markers that can be used to assay individual DNA samples simultaneously; the numbers 289

APPENDIX 3 of progeny from mutation events or recombination events that can be screened for low probability responses; or the numbers of samples that can be handled simultaneously with robotics. In general, the manageable sizes and scopes of many activities and assays have increased significantly; the number of nucleotide base pairs that can be amplified or sequenced, the extent of coverage of genome in any assay, the density of molecular markers (number of markers per centiMorgan) on a molecular genetic linkage map, the lengths of fragments inserted into bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) libraries, and lengths of contigs that can be assembled while comparing sequence data are a few examples of such increases. Interestingly, increases in scope and scale have progressed in tandem with concomitant enhancements in efficiency levels as costs and time per unit data point have been reduced significantly; equipment and supplies have become cheaper and therefore lent themselves to wider access to research facilities of varying levels of budget, infrastructure and human resource capacities. However, it is also noteworthy that the net result of the increases in speed, scale and size and decreases in cost and time itself is a new kind of bottleneck - massive amounts of data that must be stored, processed, analysed, interpreted and displayed. Developments in computing hardware and software are addressing this bottleneck very satisfactorily as researchers usually have a wide array of choices in information technology paraphernalia for managing molecular data. Genome sequencing has also continued apace with the aforementioned advances in the science of molecular biology and innovations in the ancillary technology platforms. The first fully sequenced plant genome was Arabidopsis thaliana in 2000. 4 This species has a small genome and has become a model plant species for research in biology and genetics. The second plant species sequenced was a crop species, rice - the sequences of two different genotypes of rice were published in 2002 (Oryza sativa indica 5 and O. sativa japonica 6 ). Also, the first tree genome sequenced was a species of poplar (Populus trichocarpa) in 2006. 7 Also in 2006, the draft sequence of the genome of Medicago truncatula was 290 THE SECOND REPORT ON THE STATE OF THE WORLD’S PGRFA published. 8 This species provides a genome model for legumes. The other crop genomes that have been sequenced were those of sorghum (Sorghum bicolor), grape (Vitis vinifera) and papaya (Carica papaya); all three sequences were published in 2007. 9 In 2008, draft sequences for soybean (Glycine max) 10 and Arabidopsis lyrata 11 were published. Arabidopsis lyrata is a close relative of A. thaliana, but with a larger genome. Most recently (2009), the sequences for Brachypodium distachyon 12 (a new model species for temperate grasses and herbaceous energy crops) and for maize (Zea mays) 13 were published. Box A3.1 identifies several other higher plant species for which genome sequencing projects are underway (as of early 2010). 14 In addition to full genome sequencing, large amounts of sequence data are available for many plant species; these result from the sequencing of sizeable fragments of their genomes (e.g. the sequencing of BAC libraries or whole chromosomes). Examples of crop species (or species closely related to crops) with substantial deposits of DNA sequences in publicly accessible databases are Brassica rapa, Carica papaya, Box A3.1 List of plant species with ongoing genome sequencing projects in 2010 15 Amaranthus tuberculatus, Aquilegia coerulea, A. formosa, Arabadopsis arenosa, Arundo donax, Beta vulgaris, Brassica napus, B. oleracea, B. rapa, Capsella rubella, Chlorophytum borivilianum, Citrus sinensis, C. trifoliata, Cucumis sativus, Dioscorea alata, Eucalyptus grandis, Gossypium hirsutum, Glycyrrhiza uralensis, Hordeum vulgare, Jatropha curcas, J. tanjorensis, Lotus japonicus, Madhuca indica, Malus x domestica, Manihot esculenta, Millettia pinnata, Mimulus guttatus, Miscanthus sinensis, Musa acuminata, Nicotiana benthamiana, N. tabacum, Oryza barthii, Panicum virgatum, Phoenix dactylifera, Pinus taeda, Ricinus communis, Solanum demissum, S. lycopersicum, S. phureja, S. pimpinellifolium, S. tuberosum, Theobroma cacao, Triphysaria versicolor, Triticum aestivum, Vigna radiata and Zostera marina.
