    Welcome to Self-Pollinated Crop Breeding, Fall 2015.  We will have students participating for academic credit, as well as students participating for non-credit (Plant Breeding and Genetics Certificate program). All course content may be accessed by clicking on the "Courses" link to the left with the course title. This will open the Moodle course page, where you will find all course documents, schedule, syllabus, lectures, notes, etc. The first time you log in, you will need to enroll yourself in the course.

    Welcome to the CenUSA Bioenergy Online Peer Network! This space is designed for learning and collaboration. 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 to create an account. If you are visiting the community page to attend a webinar, here are instructions on how to use the Adobe Connect meeting room. The CenUSA Bioenergy Online Peer Network is currently funded in part by a USDA/National Institute of Food and Agriculture grant. It is a collaboration among the Plant and Soil Sciences eLibrary, eXtension, university and college educators/students, and researchers. Partners from over 9 states, USDA and 7 universities are members. We launched the fall of 2011.  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 fuel 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.
