4 A maize germplasm reference set Germplasm A reference set of maize composed of 225 inbred lines and another one of 30 populations (for further lines extraction) derived from the CIMMYT maize composite set of 987 inbred lines, genotyped with 47 SSRs, and 467 populations genotyped with 30 SSRs Comparative genomics studies and introduction of diversity and selected traits in maize breeding programs.

5 NILs for Southern Leaf Blight resistance in maize Germplasm A set of ~15 NILs carrying SLB QTL
from the resistant lines Mo17 and
NC250 was developed in a B73
background.

6 NILs for Northern Leaf Blight resistance in maize Germplasm For CML52-derived NILs, 61 SSR
markers were used to test for 38 maize bins associated with multiple disease resistance.  Eight NIL pairs showing differences in disease reaction. For DK888-derived NILs, 18 SSR markers were used to test for maize bins associated with multiple disease resistance. Five NIL pairs showing differences in disease reaction.

11 Getting the focus right:  a GCP socio-economic study to determine production constraints specific to maize Publication This study organized the systematic tapping of the tacit knowledge of experienced research and development practitioners to provide valuable information on the relative importance of different production constraints and traits. The results of this study can be a checklist and guide to those involved in maize breeding and crop systems research and development by prioritizing key traits for the improvement in each of the systems.
