    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.

    Gene Regions
    This animation shows the three gene coding regions. This is the fourth of a series of seven animations that detail the process of crop genetic engineering. To begin at the beginning, see Overview of Crop Genetic Engineering. (To return to the animation previous to this, go to Gene Cloning. To go to the next animation, go to Gene Modification.)

Featured Lessons
  • Correlation Using the R Statistical Package - Part 3: R Functions and Scripts Ashu Guru University of Nebraska Raikes School Deana Namuth-Covert University of Nebraska Dept of Agronomy and Horticulture 2014 In this lesson module we will calculate the correlation coefficient between one of the Canopy Spectral Reflectance (CSR) indices with yield and/or yield components under water stressed and non-stressed treatments in 300 winter wheat lines. As we analyze one aspect of the recorded data we will demonstrate the concepts of R programming and computational thinking to accomplish this goal.
