  • Building Hydroponic Systems
    Brian Waters bwaters2@unl.edu
    Welcome!  "Buildling Hydroponic Systems"  in an educational project being developed by the Waters Lab at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Dr. Brian Waters has developed a system that can be used by researchers and educators to experiment with the uses of hydroponic systems. Please join this community for updates as new learning materials become available.    This site has been developed through grant funding provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF). 

  • 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.
