The introduction and maturation of next-generation sequencing technology provides an excellent opportunity to develop genome-wide molecular markers and genomic breeding tools for breeding next generation of barley varieties with improvement of productivity, adaptation and better marketability... The project will decode about 800 million genetic letters of barley chromosome 7H in about 8000 clones using next generation sequencing technology... The success of the project will enable breeders and pre-breeders to access the genomic sequence to dissect the genes on chromosome 7H for yield, adaptation, quality, biotic and abiotic stress tolerance and to develop diagnostic molecular markers and genomic breeding tools...

Barley grain defects (kernel staining, pre-harvest sprouting and black point) have resulted in tens of million dollars economic loss to the barley industry due to malting barley being discounted or down graded to feed... Development of phenotypic analysis tools for 3 A recently updated "Seedcount" image analysis system was evaluated for barley black point analysis as a replacement for the current visual measurement... Results from the project demonstrate that the Canadian "quality" gene has also resulted in sensitivity to pre-harvest sprouting...

China Resources Snow Breweries senior procurement manager Ning (Helen) He highlighted the opportunities for Australian barley growers in China's growing beer market... The Australian Barley Technical Symposium has been a biennial event since 1983 and provides a venue for those involved in the barley industry - through research, breeding and growing - from Australia and further afield to meet and share their findings while learning about challenges in the broader industry... While there are gaps that need to be addressed in meeting the volume and consistency requirements for Australia's export customers, the symposium noted that there is a substantial body of work happening in pathology, breeding and genetics that bodes well for the future of the industry in Australia...

" Date: 24.01.2008 Quality and price common triggers for global grain p12_barleyglobala The outlook for barley is all about breeding the right grain for the right market at the right price By Brendon Cant Since it was first cultivated in Latin America about 500 years ago, barley has had a special place in the hearts and minds of South American people, acquiring a high social and economic status... Today, rising beer consumption has driven increased plantings of malt barley in Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Uruguay, while the Andean countries Bolivia, Ecuador, Columbia and Peru are home to food, feed and forage barley production... [Photo (left) by Brendon Cant: Dr Flavio Capettini] despite this, Mexico-based barley breeder Dr Flavio Capettini from the International Centre for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) says agricultural research resources have been scarce and the Australian model of rural R&D is one that Latin American countries should follow, especially in barley breeding...
