If you are visiting the community page to attend a webinar, here are instructions on how to use the Adobe Connect meeting room. Please click the Adobe Connect icon above. Enter as a guest with your name and institution.  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.

    Our hope is that this community will become a wealth of information shared.  Please use the Discussion Board above (and within each specific area)  to post lesson plans, images, and other items of interest.  From time to time we will move items that have been posted to the most appropriate areas of the site. In the Discussion Board above, the first few postings contain materials to help you learn how to create dynamic posts and attach materials to your posts. ELAS Events and Workshops will be a place for us to provide lists of specific events of interest to ELAS. ELAS Pedagogical Resources link in the left menu is an area where we will share information about materials available on the web and through other sources. ELAS Teaching Tips link in the left menu will be used to share tips and tricks that have been found useful, and possibly warnings of things that don't seem to work. ELAS Activities and Lesson Plans will eventually contain a variety of actual activities and lesson plans for your use. ELAS Leader Contacts provides you with a list of the original leaders of this site, including their affiliations and email addresses.
