During the establishment of the TG project, an external group called the Triticeae Genomics Network (TGN) was initiated with laboratories that have expressed their intention to collaborate with the project. From an initial list of 16 members, the TGN reached 24 members at the end of the project thereby indicating the interest from the community to collaborate with the TG partners and have pre publication access to the results of the project. The interactions with the TGN were well developed throughout the project duration and selected results of the TG project were exchanged regularly. A table reporting the interactions with the TGN members and TG partners has been produced (available on the following link).
All TG partners originally members of the European Triticeae Genomics Initiative (www.etgi.org) continued to actively participate to networking activities that were until May 2010 supported by the COST action: FA0604 Tritigen. Most of them were also key partners of the International consortia for sequencing the wheat (IWGSC, www.wheatgenome.org) and barley (IBSC, www.barleygenome.org) genomes. All these parallel consortia ensured interactions and coordination with international projects that have similar goals as the TG project.
The TriticeaeGenome project developed interactions at least with 5 international (e.g. ITMI, International SNP initiative, Barley genome zipper), 4 European (e.g. ETGI, Tritigen FA0604, BARCODE) and 22 national (e.g. Breedwheat-France, 3B SEQ-France, BARLEX-Germany, TRITEX-Germany, BBSRC phenotyping LOLAs-UK, AGER-Italy) projects/initiatives (see Annex 2)
