Collection Name:Designing Future Wheat Academic ToolkitCollection Image
Collection Description:

The DFW Wheat Academic Toolkit (ATK) is a set of pre-breeding germplasm lines, developed by the Designing Future Wheat (DFW) Institute Strategic Programme, a BBSRC funded scientific programme spanning eight research institutes and universities, with the aim to develop new wheat germplasm containing the next generation of key traits. The ATK includes near isogenic lines (NILs) or equivalent material from different wheat diversity sources, e.g. landraces, mutation screening, ancient wheat relatives and new synthetic wheats. ATK lines are assessed for traits of interest within the DFW programme ( and are genotyped using the 35k Axiom Wheat Genotyping Breeders Array. Particularly promising lines are trialled in multi-site trials by commercial breeders and scientific institutions as an annually changing Breeders Diversity Toolkit (BTK) series (see colelction 41 Breeders Tool Kit). Paragon has been as a background parent for many lines (Wild Relative, Mutation, Landraces) along with Robigus (Synthetics). Further background parents have been added such as Freiston (F), Gleam (G), Silverstone (S), Weebil (Wee) and Garcia (Gar). Recent lines are also stacking advantages and modifying with Rht and Vrn alleles for a further advantageous product .
