Founded in 1962, the CIHEAM is a Mediterranean intergovernmental organisation devoted to the sustainable development of agriculture and fisheries, food and nutrition security and rural and coastal areas. It is composed of 13 member States (Albania, Algeria, Egypt, France, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Malta, Morocco, Portugal, Spain, Tunisia and Turkey) and operates through its 4 Institutes based in Bari (Italy), Chania (Greece), Montpellier (France) and Zaragoza (Spain) and the Headquarters based in Paris.

_ In Europe, soil borne viruses, i.e. Barley yellow mosaic virus (BaYMV) and Barley mild mosaic virus (BaMMV) on barley and Soil-borne cereal mosaic virus (SBCMV) on wheat as well as the aphid transmitted Barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV) cause severe yield losses. Based on detailed genetic analyses different genes and QTL for resistance or tolerance to these viruses, respectively have been identified and molecular markers facilitating efficient marker based selection procedures, e.g. marker based backcrossing procedures and gene pyramiding, have been developed. In this paper the present state of the art concerning molecular breeding for resistance to these viruses is reviewed and future perspectives for gene isolation and breeding on the allelic level are briefly discussed
