    Jamie Sherman Deana Namuth-Covert
     The Triticeae CAP will offer several graduate course modules each year. You will find links to each module in the left-hand menu of this page.  Please join this community to receive updates about upcoming TCAP graduate courses. Plant Breeding strategies is an entry level 6 week module that will challenge students to design a plant breeding program differentiating between a variety of approaches.  Next offering: TBD Entering Mentoring is an 8 week module that will be offered next in winter of 2014.  The Entering Mentoring Seminar will accelerate the process of learning to be a mentor by providing an intellectual framework, an opportunity to experiment with different mentoring techniques, a forum to discuss mentoring dilemmas, and second-hand exposure to more students and situations through group sharing.Attendees must be actively involved in mentoring a student to participate. Quantitative Genetics was last offered in April of 2012.    Basic elements of quantitative genetics will be presented so that students might fully understand implications to plant breeding. Practical experience in linkage and QTL mapping will also be provided.  Next offering TBD. Association mapping will be offered late in the fall of 2012, registration will be September of 2012.  Topics to be covered will include: Review of Quantitative Genetics and Molecular Breeding, Methods and Software for Association Mapping, Design and Interpretation of QTL mapping, Genomic Selection and Comparison of MAS, Association Breeding and Genomic selection.  Pre-requisites - Plant Breeding strategies and Quantitative genetics.  

  • CenUSA Education Material

    What is the CenUSA Bioenergy Project? The CenUSA Bioenergy project is funded by the USDA and includes faculty and staff from 8 institutions working together to investigate perennial grasses as a feedstock for biofuels and the creation of a regional sustainable biofuels system in the Midwest. CenUSA Bioenergy Vision Our vision is to create a regional system for producing advanced transportation fuels derivedfrom perennial grasses grown on land that is either unsuitable or marginal for row crop production.  In addition to producing advanced biofuels, the proposed system will improve the sustainability of existing cropping systems by reducing agricultural runoff of nutrients and soil and increasing carbon sequestration. To learn more about the CenUSA project, please visit the CenUSA home page at http://www.cenusa.iastate.edu/ To view the educational materials we have created thus far, click on the "lessons" tab above.  Find additional quizzes by clicking on the "CenUSA Education" link under the self-paced course heading.  The left hand tabs will take you to more detailed descriptions of the CenUSA project objectives.                                                                  The CenUSA Bioenergy project is supported by Agriculture and Food Research Initiative Competitive Grant no. 2011-68005-30411 from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.

Featured Lessons
  • Backcross Breeding 1 - Basic Gene Inheritance This lesson reviews the basics of gene inheritance. It compares plants that are homozygous, heterozygous, and hemizygous for an allele and how gene expression is affected by the dominance of an allele. It also explains how to use a Punnett square to predict genotypic and phenotypic ratios of offspring.
