    Undergraduate Students in TCAP Click on the map below to see where TCAP students are located across the country.  Once the map opens in a new tab you can click on the red dots to learn more.   Undergraduate Research Internships in Plant Genetics and Plant Breeding The Plant Breeder Training Network for Undergraduate Students (PBTN – US) provides an excellent experience for students who wish to understand the science of plant genetics and plant breeding and acquire training in research. Students will gain knowledge and skills by assisting a graduate student with research and, with advice from their graduate mentor, planning and implementing an independent research project.   Purpose To meet global demand for food in the coming decades, new crop varieties adapted to conditions of changing climate, limited land, water and nutrient resources and unyielding disease pressure are needed.  This work requires the collaborative efforts of scientists with knowledge in the areas of genetics, genomics, breeding strategies and experimental design and the application of tools of molecular genetics and computational biology.   PBTN-US provides a way for undergraduate students to gain experience and skills in many of these areas, to learn about careers in research, and to prepare for the next step in their own research career. PBTN – US provides: paid research internships mentoring by trained graduate students interaction with undergraduate interns at other institutions interaction with professional plant breeders in academia and industry funds for travel to a scientific conference to present research results   To learn more about research internships, click below for a description of research projects and contact information.

  • Global Learning Think Tank
    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.

    Absorción Foliar
    Esta animación describe cómo se absorben los herbicidas por las hojas, e ilustra cómo sus características físico-químicas alteran su movimiento a través de la cutícula. También se muestran mecanismos pasivos y activos de la absorción de los herbicidas a través de las membranas de las plantas.

    Traditional Breeding vs. Biotechnology
    This animation shows the differences between natural plant breeding and plant breeding using biotechnology. The end result is a plant with the desired gene lacking undesired genes.
