Students will gain knowledge and skills by assisting a graduate student with research and, with advice from their graduate mentor, planning and implementing an independent research project.   Purpose To meet global demand for food in the coming decades, new crop varieties adapted to conditions of changing climate, limited land, water and nutrient resources and unyielding disease pressure are needed.  This work requires the collaborative efforts of scientists with knowledge in the areas of genetics, genomics, breeding strategies and experimental design and the application of tools of molecular genetics and computational biology.   PBTN-US provides a way for undergraduate students to gain experience and skills in many of these areas, to learn about careers in research, and to prepare for the next step in their own research career. PBTN – US provides: paid research internships mentoring by trained graduate students interaction with undergraduate interns at other institutions interaction with professional plant breeders in academia and industry funds for travel to a scientific conference to present research results   To learn more about research internships, click below for a description of research projects and contact information.

    Traditional Breeding vs. Biotechnology
    This animation shows the differences between natural plant breeding and plant breeding using biotechnology. The end result is a plant with the desired gene lacking undesired genes.
Featured Lessons
  • Soils - Part 4: Soil pH Soil pH is defined and its implications for crop production are described in this lesson. How are soil pH and buffer pH determined? How are these assessments used in lime recommendations? The factors that influence pH variations in soils, the chemistry involved in changing the pH of a soil, and the benefits associated with liming acid soils will be discussed. [This lesson, as well as the other nine lessons in the Soils series, is taken from the "Soils Home Study Course," published in 1999 by the University of Nebraska Cooperative Extension.]
