    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.

    Mecanismos de Acción de las Auxinas y los Herbicidas Auxínicos
    Se muestra como las auxinas y los herbicidas auxínicos pueden inducir respuestas celulares y se describe el transporte basípeto de las auxinas. También se muestra como los receptores de auxinas reconocen las auxinas y los herbicidas auxínicos, los cuales inducen entonces la transmisión y traducción de señales para activar varios genes; el papel de los productos de esos genes en las respuestas de las plantas es también mostrado.

    Corn Crossing
    An interactive animation first demonstrating how controlled crosses are made in corn then asking the learner to click and drag objects to make a controlled cross of their own.
Featured Lessons
  • Herbicides That Act Through Photosynthesis This lesson will examine herbicides that adversely affect light-related processes, thereby causing damage to plants. There are four basic mechanisms that will be studied in this class of agents: herbicides that inhibit or block synthesis of Protoporphyrin IX; herbicides that inhibit synthesis of carotenoids; herbicides that block Photosystem II electron transfer; and herbicides that divert electrons from Photosystem I. All share the ability to cause cellular damage in the presence of light.
