  • Plant Breeding Graduate Student Community
    Jamie Sherman jsherman@montana.edu
    Growing the Future With the loss of plant breeding positions in the public sector, there has been a loss of the infrastructure that supports plant breeding training, including a reduction in professors with plant breeding expertise, a critical mass of students often too low to provide a stimulating learning environment, and the inability to offer courses with sufficient audience. Although studies support the positive impact of a strong community on learning, currently, students are often trained in isolation.  The PBTN has been established to mitigate isolation barriers that currently limit plant breeding education at most institutions and in most plant breeding work places around the world.  PBTN supports online course sharing (See list of courses).  The PBTN online graduate student community  is a place for students around the world to make contact with other plant breeding students, providing an opportunity  to exchange ideas, develop interpersonal skills (such as communication and collaboration) and build a plant breeding student community. If you have questions about the community, graduate work in plant breeding, or career oportunities, please contact us.  Jamie Sherman Director-TCAP graduate community and PBTN jsherman@montana.edu   Mary Brakke Director-TCAP undergraduate community brakk001@umn.edu   Deana Namuth-Covert Director-Plant Breeding Training Network (PBTN) dcovert2@unl.edu     This community is funded by the Triticeae CAP project. 

  • Building Hydroponic Systems
    Brian Waters bwaters2@unl.edu
    Welcome!  "Buildling Hydroponic Systems"  in an educational project being developed by the Waters Lab at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Dr. Brian Waters has developed a system that can be used by researchers and educators to experiment with the uses of hydroponic systems. Please join this community for updates as new learning materials become available.    This site has been developed through grant funding provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
