Building on infrastructure created through the support of NSF, The Plant Breeding Training Network has been created as part of the Triticeae CAP funded through USDA NIFA.
PBTN launched the summer of 2011. As it grows and develops, we anticipate breeding and genetics collaborators from other plant species will be added.
Please take a look around and we hope you find the materials, webinars, classes and interactions with colleagues 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.
