North American Invasive Plant Ecology and Management Short Course Steve Young
Welcome to the North American Invasive Plant Ecology and Management Short Course (NAIPSC) Online Community! The NAIPSC Online Community houses information about the NAIPSC Field Course, instructors, resources, and future opportunities to increase your knowledge of invasive plants.
The 2013-2014 NAIPSC Webinar Series starts in October!
The NAIPSC is hosting a series of webinars throughout 2013 and 2014. These webinars will be provided free to past NAIPSC participants, and for a fee to all other attendees. Your webinar series fee may be applied toward enrollment in the 2014 NAIPSC Field Course. For more information about the webinar series and the course, check the NAIPSC web site or contact Steve Young.
You may attend webinars and view all archived webinars in the series by joining the NAIPSC Online Community. To the left of this page, you will see a link to the NAIPSC Online Community under "Related Communities." Approval of your request to join will be subject to participation in an NAIPSC activity (e.g., Field Course or Web Course) or payment to join the NAIPSC Online Community. For the latter, click here.

Plant Breeding Training Network Deana Namuth-Covert, PhD
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.

Genetic Engineering Vs. Traditional Breeding Timeline This animation compares the timeline for genetic engineering versus traditional plant breeding. It also compares the regulatory processes of each.
Procesos de Ionización, pH, y pKa En esta animación se definen los términos Ionización, pH y pKa.
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.)
Inhibitors of Fatty Acid Synthesis and Elongation
Fatty acid synthesis and fatty acid elongation are two parts of a critically important pathway in plants. The endproducts are essential components of cell membranes, waxes, and suberin. Two chemical families of herbicide (groups that share similar chemical structures) inhibit fatty acid synthesis, while fatty acid elongation is inhibited by two other families. This lesson will provide an overview of fatty acid synthesis and elongation, and explain where herbicides inhibit the pathway. Mechanisms of resistance to these herbicides will be described.
