  • Plant Breeders Without Borders
    Anthony Leddin
    Welcome to Plant Breeders Without Borders! Similar to the "Doctors Without Borders" concept, our organization aims to match volunteer plant breeders with projects overseas in underserved areas in the hopes of promoting the exchange of plant breeding knowledge. These volunteers would train locals to be plant breeders, as well as mentoring undergraduates involved in the project.  Ideally, the project leaves behind new, native plant breeders that are able to continue breeding work with support of the plant breeding volunteer from back in their home country.  If you are interested in involvement with this project, please contact Anthony Leddin at aleddin@valleyseeds.com.   Partners Melb Uni versity WA University  Sydney University Latrobe University FAO -CIAR Centre of underdeveloped crop species (Crops for the future) based in Malaysia. Australian Business Volunteers (ABV) Crawford fund The Noble foundation

  • Irrigation Home Study Course
    Chuck Burr Extension Educator Univ of Nebraska chuck.burr@unl.edu
    The intent of this Home Study Course is to increase the user’s awareness and understanding of irrigation management concepts. This in turn can help producers reduce irrigation application amounts and increase uniformity of application, thereby reducing deep percolation and runoff. The end result can be reduced irrigation costs, increased efficiency, increased yields and reduced surface and groundwater contamination. The target audience for this course includes: crop consultants, agency personnel, irrigated crop producers and others interested in improving their irrigation water management skills. There is additional information on irrigation management on the UNL Water webpage: http://water.unl.edu/web/cropswater/home It is hoped that you find this course both helpful and enjoyable. To begin work in the course click on "Lessons" in the task bar above.  This will take you to a page where you can click on links to view each chapter.  We recommend that you print a few of the addenda, especially the Tables and the Equations.  For best printing results, set the printing properties to Portrait and, if available, to print both sides.  Upon completing a chapter you can take the quiz by clicking on the "Quiz" link included in each lesson; you may use your printed addenda while taking each quiz.  To earn CEU credit, you'll need to get 8 of 10 questions correct.  You may retake quizzes as many times as you wish.

    Gene Modifications
    This animation shows how a gene is constructed to eventually produce a protein in a Bt corn plant. This is the fifth 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 Regions. To go to the next animation, go to Gene Gun.)
Featured Lessons
  • Linkage - Part 2 Learn to make predictions about inheritance using map unit distances and genetic markers, assemble maps from multiple-point linkage data, define the relationship between linkage maps, linkage groups and genome maps, and describe how DNA or molecular markers are observed and used in gene mapping.
