    Undergraduate Students in TCAP Click on the map below to see where TCAP students are located across the country.  Once the map opens in a new tab you can click on the red dots to learn more.   Undergraduate Research Internships in Plant Genetics and Plant Breeding The Plant Breeder Training Network for Undergraduate Students (PBTN – US) provides an excellent experience for students who wish to understand the science of plant genetics and plant breeding and acquire training in research. 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.

  • Science for Educators Lifelong Learning Community
    Christine E Haney Douglass Program Coordinator chaney3@unl.edu University of Nebraska Lincoln
    Welcome! We have created this online learning community to offer a place for science teachers who are current graduate students, recent graduates and/or active professionals to share their ideas, lesson plans, publications and questions with others who are working to teach science. PLEASE JOIN THE SELF_PACED COURSES IN THE LEFT HAND MENU (free to join) TO SEE NEW JOB, GRANT & INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES. This was the best way we could manage the wealth of information. Please use this space to explore and share and submit only items you are comfortable with others using for free.  This location is meant to further the knowledge and experience of teaching science by learning, adjusting and adapting to what others before you have contributed. Feel free to contact us at any time to make suggestions or ask questions. We are so happy you have joined us and wish you much luck as you progress in your own professional knowledge! Kind Regards, Master of Applied Science, Science for Educators specialization team University of Nebraska Lincoln

Featured Lessons
  • Inhibitors of Fatty Acid Synthesis and Elongation Fatty acid synthesis and fatty acid elongation are two parts of a critically important pathway in plants. The endproducts are essential components of cell membranes, waxes, and suberin. Two chemical families of herbicide (groups that share similar chemical structures) inhibit fatty acid synthesis, while fatty acid elongation is inhibited by two other families. This lesson will provide an overview of fatty acid synthesis and elongation, and explain where herbicides inhibit the pathway. Mechanisms of resistance to these herbicides will be described.
