The Integrated Breeding Platform is a development being led by the Generation Challenge Programme (GCP), a part of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) which has a mission to bring scientists from different horizons and with different skills to work together, bridging the gap between upstream and applied research, so that biotechnology could have greater impact on plant breeding efficiency in developing countries.
The Integrated Breeding Platform functions as a one-stop-shop to provide information, tools, services and training. Furthermore IBP hopes to provide developing countries with access to modern breeding technologies, breeding materials, and related information to facilitate their adoption of molecular breeding approaches and improve their plant breeding efficiency.
This site provides educational and training opportunities to help people be able to better utilize the tools at the Integrated Breeding Platform, as well as to provide an online community area for webinars and discussion forums. In order to access the self-paced courses found at the left, you will need to click on the "Join Now" button found in the upper right corner of this page. Right now the courses are under development and not ready for participants. While you wait, you can view any materials found under the "lessons" or "animations/video" buttons.
This project was supported in by the National Research Initiative Competitive Grants CAP project 2011-68002-30029 from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
Plant Breeders Without Borders Anthony Leddin
Welcome to Plant Breeders Without Borders!
Similar to the "Doctors Without Borders" concept, our organization aims to match volunteer plant breeders with projects overseas in underserved areas in the hopes of promoting the exchange of plant breeding knowledge. These volunteers would train locals to be plant breeders, as well as mentoring undergraduates involved in the project. Ideally, the project leaves behind new, native plant breeders that are able to continue breeding work with support of the plant breeding volunteer from back in their home country.
If you are interested in involvement with this project, please contact Anthony Leddin at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Overview of Crop Genetic Engineering A general look at the process of crop genetic engineering.
This is the first of a series of seven animations that detail the process of crop genetic engineering. The six lessons after this are DNA and DNA Extraction, Gene Cloning, Gene Regions, Gene Modification, Gene Gun, and Backcross Breeding.
Gene Expression Part 1: Reading Genes to Make Proteins
This lesson describes the steps involved in a cell as DNA sequence information is read to make RNA and RNA is read to make proteins.
