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 Breeding Activity
    This interactive activity goes through the basic process used in a traditional breeding program. Crossing, genetic variation, selection and elements of DNA technology are discussed within this activity. The material is aimed towards high school or introductory life science undergraduate students.
Featured Lessons
  • Native Plant Breeding: Bringing the Beauty of Nature Home Looks at how native plant breeders create plants with new combinations of desired traits; the relationship between plants, flowers and seeds; male and female structures flowers; flower types based on structures observed in the flower; and how flower structures impact plant crossbreeding.
