Plant Breeding and Genetics Online Certificate Program Deanna Leingang
The Plant Breeding and Genetics Professional Development - Certificate Program is being offered by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Department of Agronomy and Horticulture.
Here, in this eLibrary community, you will find a sample genetics exam. Use it to help determine whether you should take the Refresher Genetics module to begin the certificate, or if you are ready to start with the advanced core/elective modules. More details of the certificate program are found in the left-hand menu links, including all available modules.
To begin the sample genetics exam, click here or on the Lessons link above. Click on the "Sample Genetics Exam" lesson and then "Take Quiz." Follow the simple pop-up instructions for creating an account which will appear next in the yellow screen.
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.

Absorción Radical Esta animación muestra cómo se absorben los herbicidas por las raíces, e ilustra la ruta que sigue el herbicida a través de la raíz, para llegar al sistema vascular de la planta.
Herbicide Metabolism: Secondary Conjugation General and specific examples of Phase III reactions showing secondary conjugation of sugar conjugates with malonic acid.
Gene Regions This animation shows the three gene coding regions. This is the fourth 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 Gene Cloning. To go to the next animation, go to Gene Modification.)
Aplicaciones prácticas de la fisiología de los herbicidas en las plantas
Esta lección se focaliza en el impacto de las características de la planta y el herbicida, importantes para determinar el desempeño del herbicida. Se usarán imágenes visuales para ilustrar varios principios, incluyendo el sitio de absorción del herbicida en la planta, transporte, el sitio de acción sensible, y efectos del ambiente sobre el desempeño del herbicida. Esta información provee la base para maximizar la utilidad del uso de los herbicidas.
