    Welcome to the CenUSA Bioenergy Online Peer Network! This space is designed for learning and collaboration. 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 to create an account. If you are visiting the community page to attend a webinar, here are instructions on how to use the Adobe Connect meeting room. The CenUSA Bioenergy Online Peer Network is currently funded in part by a USDA/National Institute of Food and Agriculture grant. It is a collaboration among the Plant and Soil Sciences eLibrary, eXtension, university and college educators/students, and researchers. Partners from over 9 states, USDA and 7 universities are members. We launched the fall of 2011.  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 fuel 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.

    Phosphorus in Surface Waters
    This animation demonstrates the four forms that phosphorus (P) can take in surface water, and how the equilibrium between the forms can be upset and then rebalanced.
Featured Lessons
  • Herbicide Discovery and Screening Historically, herbicides have been discovered by randomly screening collections of chemicals for activity on target weeds. While totally empirical, this approach has been surprisingly successful and has produced essentially all commercial herbicides currently in use. More recently, agrichemical companies have adopted directed strategies using in vitro assays, compound structure/activity relationships, and profiling assays of mRNAs, proteins, and metabolites. These latter approaches, in combination with high-throughput screens, are designed to exploit recent advances in technology and take advantage of our increased understanding of biological systems.
