Interpretive Summary: This paper presents the status of several cotton germplasm collections in major cotton growing countries across the world. This report was developed to address the concern of genetic vulnerability and erosion of genetic materials from a collaborative effort among the scientists at the bi-annual meeting of the Germplasm and Genetic Stocks Work Group, International Cotton Genome Inititiative, Anyang, China in 2008. Cotton germplasm collections discussed include those from the US, India, France, China, Australia, Uzbekistan, and Brazil. These report provided a brief description of the curated cotton germplasm resources in major cotton growing countries. The contents, maintenance methods, and availability of each germplasm collection are discussed. Future concerns and opportunities are discussed that aim to protect and preserve the global cotton germplasm resources within a collaborative, multi-national framework.

Technical Abstract: This paper reports the status of several large cotton germplasm collections present across the world. Cotton germplasm collections discussed include those from the US, India, France, China, Australia, Uzbekistan, and Brazil. These collections represent a large portion of the curated cotton germplasm resources worldwide. The contents, maintenance methods, and availability of each germplasm collection are discussed. Future concerns and opportunities are discussed that aim to protect and secure the global cotton germplasm resources within a collaborative, multi-national framework.
