    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.

    Welcome to the Plant Breeding Training Network (PBTN)!  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 about how to create a PBTN account. 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. Deana Namuth-Covert and Jason Cook PBTN Directors Gary Muhelbauer and Jorge Dubcovsky TCAP Project Directors

    Gene Cloning
    A basic depiction of the steps in gene cloning. This is the third of a series of seven animations that detail the process of crop genetic engineering. To begin at the beginning, see Overview of Crop Genetic Engineering. (To return to the animation previous to this, go to DNA and DNA Extraction. To go to the next animation, go to Gene Regions.)
