    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.

    Welcome to the North American Invasive Plant Ecology and Management Short Course (NAIPSC) Online Community! The NAIPSC Online Community houses information about the NAIPSC Field Course, instructors, resources, and future opportunities to increase your knowledge of invasive plants. The second half of the 2013-2014 NAIPSC Webinar Series is underway! The NAIPSC is hosting a series of webinars throughout 2013 and 2014. These webinars will be provided free to past NAIPSC participants, and for a fee to all other attendees. Your webinar series fee may be applied toward enrollment in the 2014 NAIPSC Field  Course. For more information about the webinar series and the course, check the NAIPSC web site or contact Steve Young. You may attend webinars and view all archived webinars in the series by joining the NAIPSC Online Community. To the left of this page, you will see a link to the NAIPSC Online Community under "Related Communities." Approval of your request to join will be subject to participation in an NAIPSC activity (e.g., Field Course or Web Course) or payment to join the NAIPSC Online Community. For the latter, click here.

    Protein Synthesis: Transcription/Translation Overview
    This animation shows the transcription process of RNA within the plant cell. Single stranded RNA moves out of the cell where it is translated into proteins. This is the first in a series of three animations on protein synthesis. The other two animations are Transcription and Translation.

Featured Lessons
  • Herbicidas que Actúan A través de la Fotosíntesis En esta lección se examinarán los herbicidas que afectan los procesos celulares relacionados con la utilización de la luz, causando así daños a las plantas. Existen cuatro mecanismos básicos que serán estudiados: herbicidas que obstruyen la síntesis de protoporfirina IX; herbicidas que inhiben la síntesis de carotenoides; herbicidas que obstruyen la transferencia de electrones en el fotosistema II; y herbicidas que substraen electrones del fotosistema I. Todos ellos comparten la misma habilidad de causar daños celulares en presencia de luz.
