  • 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

  • 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.
