    Welcome to a new area within the Plant and Soil Sciences eLibrary! Here we'll continue discussions after the Feb 14th  seminar by Dr. Deana and team.  Archived recording is linked here and at image for: A Decade of Online International Impacts and Partnerships Through the Plant and Soil Sciences eLibrary .  Please join our community to explore Plant and Soil Sciecnes eLibrary (PASSeL) resources, learn about new partnership opportunities, and discuss the future of science education. By joining the community, you will be able to participate in an ongoing forum of ideas and receive updates from us about new projects.

  • Plant Breeders Without Borders
    Anthony Leddin
    Welcome to Plant Breeders Without Borders! Similar to the "Doctors Without Borders" concept, our organization aims to match volunteer plant breeders with projects overseas in underserved areas in the hopes of promoting the exchange of plant breeding knowledge. These volunteers would train locals to be plant breeders, as well as mentoring undergraduates involved in the project.  Ideally, the project leaves behind new, native plant breeders that are able to continue breeding work with support of the plant breeding volunteer from back in their home country.  If you are interested in involvement with this project, please contact Anthony Leddin at aleddin@valleyseeds.com.   Partners Melb Uni versity WA University  Sydney University Latrobe University FAO -CIAR Centre of underdeveloped crop species (Crops for the future) based in Malaysia. Australian Business Volunteers (ABV) Crawford fund The Noble foundation

    Bacteria Transformation
    Illustrates the beginning stages of gene cloning. This animation shows how plasmids become recombinant and are inserted into bacteria cells. This is the second of four animations detailing the gene cloning process. To begin at the beginning, see Making a Recombinant Plasmid. (To see the next animation, go to Making a Gene Library.)
Featured Lessons
  • Backcross Breeding 1 - Basic Gene Inheritance This lesson reviews the basics of gene inheritance. It compares plants that are homozygous, heterozygous, and hemizygous for an allele and how gene expression is affected by the dominance of an allele. It also explains how to use a Punnett square to predict genotypic and phenotypic ratios of offspring.
