LOTS of informal training by professionals, turn technicians into students!

Plant Breeding EDUCATION Needs to take place in context of active breeding program! M.S. and Ph.D. are RESEARCH degrees We may need to re-think how and where the research and formal education take place. Perhaps NOT necessary to do both in the University setting!

Disciplines—Most are the same as 40 years ago Mendelian/transmission genetics Cytogenetics, cell biology Plant pathology/entomology/weed science Statistics and Experimental Design Quantitative Genetics, Population Genetics Botany, plant & crop physiology CROP PRODUCTION for urban students

Molecular Plant Breeders? Intra-University competition for resources and students! LOTS of talk about “precision” plant breeding modification via molecular biology, modification/insertion of genes Field Experience tends to be lacking among scientists making most aggressive claims. We share lots of tools with molecular biology, but are applied with different goals.

Plant Breeding is an Integration of Many Disciplines Engineering may be most apt model in education. Regardless how much cutting edge Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Materials Science is done, we still need to teach how to integrate these various disciplines into a useful and coherent product—roads, bridges, dams,electronic devices, substances.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
