    Undergraduate Students in TCAP Click on the map below to see where TCAP students are located across the country.  Once the map opens in a new tab you can click on the red dots to learn more.   Undergraduate Research Internships in Plant Genetics and Plant Breeding The Plant Breeder Training Network for Undergraduate Students (PBTN – US) provides an excellent experience for students who wish to understand the science of plant genetics and plant breeding and acquire training in research. Students will gain knowledge and skills by assisting a graduate student with research and, with advice from their graduate mentor, planning and implementing an independent research project.   Purpose To meet global demand for food in the coming decades, new crop varieties adapted to conditions of changing climate, limited land, water and nutrient resources and unyielding disease pressure are needed.  This work requires the collaborative efforts of scientists with knowledge in the areas of genetics, genomics, breeding strategies and experimental design and the application of tools of molecular genetics and computational biology.   PBTN-US provides a way for undergraduate students to gain experience and skills in many of these areas, to learn about careers in research, and to prepare for the next step in their own research career. PBTN – US provides: paid research internships mentoring by trained graduate students interaction with undergraduate interns at other institutions interaction with professional plant breeders in academia and industry funds for travel to a scientific conference to present research results   To learn more about research internships, click below for a description of research projects and contact information.

  • 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
