Plant Breeding and Genomics Community of Practice
Led by SolCAP, a group of researchers and educators from U.S. land-grant universities, government agencies, and industry have created an internet resource aimed at quickly putting basic research on crop genomes on the web to support plant breeding programs. Find articles, tutorials, videos, and more at the eXtension (pronounced E-extension) website.
Also visit the community's YouTube channel.
This resource is for students and professionals involved with plant breeding, and for agricultural producers who utilize the new varieties resulting from traditional and emerging plant breeding methods. This is a growing collection of educational information, collaboratively authored and reviewed by our community of researchers, educators, and eXtension personnel who have experience and expertise in plant breeding and genomics topics and crop production topics.The Goals of the Plant Breeding and Genomics Community of Practice
Help put genomics research and tools into practice through plant breeding by:
- Presenting unbiased science-based information in a variety of media formats
- Sharing the most current, relevant, and accurate information available on techniques, procedures, and bioinformatics software
- Being a reliable resource that is responsive to the changing needs of the plant breeding industry and agricultural producers
- Fostering collaboration among members of the plant breeding and genomics community
PBGworks.org - The online home for the PBG Community of Practice
SolCAP has created a community website that fosters networking and outreach called PBGworks. It is a collaborative workspace where members of the Plant Breeding and Genomics Community of Practice (PBG CoP) are writing eXtension publications, managing projects, and networking. Visit PBGworks to learn more about the PBG CoP and becoming a member.
