    Welcome to the CenUSA Bioenergy Online Peer Network! This space is designed for learning and collaboration. Feel free to browse the reference materials located within the community.  If you would like to view current discussion topics and collaborate with other community members, you'll need to create an account.  Here are instructions to create an account. If you are visiting the community page to attend a webinar, here are instructions on how to use the Adobe Connect meeting room. The CenUSA Bioenergy Online Peer Network is currently funded in part by a USDA/National Institute of Food and Agriculture grant. It is a collaboration among the Plant and Soil Sciences eLibrary, eXtension, university and college educators/students, and researchers. Partners from over 9 states, USDA and 7 universities are members. We launched the fall of 2011.  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 fuel 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.

  • 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.
