Abstract/Summary Wheat genetic material from the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Centre (CIMMYT) germplasm bank has been grown in Australia for the past 40 years, with the help and funding of the Grains Research and Development Corporation. The CIMMYT Australian Germplasm Enhancement (CAGE) suite of projects, in operation since 2005, aimed to streamline the coordination, evaluation and management of germplasm and data between CIMMYT and Australia. The imported material was grown in field trials around Australia and the phenotypic data collected was analysed and shared with CIMMYT, helping breeders make selection and crossing decisions. Whole-genome profiling using DArT markers was also performed on this material to quantify its genetic diversity in the first instance, and to provide information for future analyses, such as association mapping. All the data collected from the field trials and testing was loaded in the Global Wheat Information System (GWIS). An outline of the successful strategies and processes is provided.
