  • CGIAR Integrated Breeding Platform

    The Integrated Breeding Platform is a development being led by the Generation Challenge Programme (GCP), a part of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) which has a mission to bring scientists from different horizons and with different skills to work together, bridging the gap between upstream and applied research, so that biotechnology could have greater impact on plant breeding efficiency in developing countries. The Integrated Breeding Platform functions as a one-stop-shop to provide information, tools, services and training.  Furthermore IBP hopes to provide developing countries with access to modern breeding technologies, breeding materials, and related information to facilitate their adoption of molecular breeding approaches and improve their plant breeding efficiency. This site provides educational and training opportunities to help people be able to better utilize the tools at the Integrated Breeding Platform, as well as to provide an online community area for webinars and discussion forums. In order to access the self-paced courses found at the left, you will need to click on the "Join Now" button found in the upper right corner of this page.  Right now the courses are under development and not ready for participants.  While you wait, you can view any materials found under the "lessons" or "animations/video" buttons. This project was supported in by the National Research Initiative Competitive Grants CAP project 2011-68002-30029 from the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.  

  • TCAP Graduate Courses
    Jamie Sherman Deana Namuth-Covert
     The Triticeae CAP will offer several graduate course modules each year. You will find links to each module in the left-hand menu of this page.  Please join this community to receive updates about upcoming TCAP graduate courses. Plant Breeding strategies is an entry level 6 week module that will challenge students to design a plant breeding program differentiating between a variety of approaches.  Next offering: TBD Entering Mentoring is an 8 week module that will be offered next in winter of 2014.  The Entering Mentoring Seminar will accelerate the process of learning to be a mentor by providing an intellectual framework, an opportunity to experiment with different mentoring techniques, a forum to discuss mentoring dilemmas, and second-hand exposure to more students and situations through group sharing.Attendees must be actively involved in mentoring a student to participate. Quantitative Genetics was last offered in April of 2012.    Basic elements of quantitative genetics will be presented so that students might fully understand implications to plant breeding. Practical experience in linkage and QTL mapping will also be provided.  Next offering TBD. Association mapping will be offered late in the fall of 2012, registration will be September of 2012.  Topics to be covered will include: Review of Quantitative Genetics and Molecular Breeding, Methods and Software for Association Mapping, Design and Interpretation of QTL mapping, Genomic Selection and Comparison of MAS, Association Breeding and Genomic selection.  Pre-requisites - Plant Breeding strategies and Quantitative genetics.

    Plant Breeding Activity
    This interactive activity goes through the basic process used in a traditional breeding program. Crossing, genetic variation, selection and elements of DNA technology are discussed within this activity. The material is aimed towards high school or introductory life science undergraduate students.
