    Deana Namuth-Covert dcovert2@unl.edu
    Welcome to a new area within the Plant and Soil Sciences eLibrary! Here we'll continue discussions after the Feb 14th  seminar by Dr. Deana and team.  Archived recording is linked here and at image for: A Decade of Online International Impacts and Partnerships Through the Plant and Soil Sciences eLibrary .  Please join our community to explore Plant and Soil Sciecnes eLibrary (PASSeL) resources, learn about new partnership opportunities, and discuss the future of science education. By joining the community, you will be able to participate in an ongoing forum of ideas and receive updates from us about new projects. To join the community, click "Join Now" in the upper right.    We have set up a discussion forum which you can participate in by clicking on the "discussion" button above.  The first time you access the forum, you will need to "enroll." Click "Enroll Me" on the page you are taken to. You will automatically receive email updates when new posts are made on the forum.

  • 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.

    Lipid Peroxidation
    Shows the process of lipid peroxidation and the resulting membrane destruction.

    ECB and Bt
    This animation shows how Bt causes death in the European corn borer (ECB).

    Making a Recombinant Plasmid
    This animation shows how a plasmid responsible for encoding a gene can be cut. The plasmid can be altered with the addition of linear DNA to form a recombinant plasmid to encode a new gene of interest. This is the first of four animations detailing the gene cloning process. The other three animations are Bacteria Transformation, Making a Library, and Screening a DNA Library.
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.
