    Deanna Leingang Deanna.Leingang@gmail.com
    Welcome to the new instructor testing community! This community will serve as a testing area for new passel instructors; you can practice editing different features of this community before starting to build your own class or community. If you do not yet have an instructor account and would like to use the Plant and Soil Sciences eLibrary to create a class or community space, please contact us via the link below.  If you are a new instructor in contact with our team, we can grant you ownership access to this community. Please contact us using the link below if you do not yet have ownership access. To begin (and determine if you have access), click on the home icon in the upper right of your screen. Your homepage should have a list of all PASSeL communities you have created or joined. You should see "New Instructor Testing Community" under "My Owned Communities." You will see several options under the title, including View, which will bring you back to this page, and Edit. To see a complete list of the community editing tools and instructions for navigating your instructor account, click here.

  • Plant Breeding Training Network (PBTN)
    Leah Sandall lsandall5@unl.edu
    Welcome to the Plant Breeding Training Network (PBTN)!  Feel free to browse the reference materials located within the community.  To go through a lesson, please follow the below information to set up a PBTN account that will allow you to enter the course.  Here are instructions about how to create a PBTN account. Building on infrastructure created through the support of the NSF, PBTN was created as part of the Triticeae CAP and is now supported by WheatCAP, both funded by USDA-NIFA. Please take a look around and we hope you find the materials, webinars, and courses in this environment to be rewarding. Together we can meet the food needs of a growing population, in the midst of climate challenges. We hope you become a frequent visitor of this site to share with us the experiences of this exciting project. Jason Cook and Leah Sandall PBTN Project Director and Administrator Jorge Dubcovsky and Eduard Akhunov WheatCAP Project Directors
