Plant Breeding and Genomics at eXtension.org provides research-based educational materials for plant breeding professionals, students, and educators. Our goal is to efficiently share plant breeding and genomics knowledge. PBG tutorials detail basic plant breeding and genomics concepts as well as the application of genomic data to breeding programs. We strive to connect the plant breeding community to rapidly developing advances in technology and publically available genomic data. Many of our tutorials demonstrate computational tools using sample data, allowing learners to replicate the demonstration and gain proficiency.
First of all, I would like to thank the author, Heather L. Merk for this great tutorial. She might not know it, but she is helping a lot of passionate farmers/amateurstudents like me to understand how Linear Mix Models works and how to apply the theoterical knowledge into the practical real one.
Afte that, I would like to ask two things:

I recently put in an order for quite a lengthy list of seeds requested for educational/ research purposes as a homeschool teacher. I was denied by some cultivators for unknown reasons. And on my order request form there are status' of each requested species that either say "pending", "new", "reviewing", or "cancelled". Can anyone please explain to me why they would deny a request for very beneficial studies? And what each status means? And how to know if you have anything actually coming to you at all? I was really excited about using the GRIN database for seeds to use this season but it's getting later and later to a point where it's overall very dissapointing that it looks as though this won't be working out for us. Very saddened by that. Your site is amazing though, I really appreciate the amount of time, effort and information you've put into it. It is extremely helpful!

A volunteer is need for a 2-3 week trip, expenses paid, to Ethiopia to train on
molecular breeding techniques with practical work in field and lab data management, sequencing and sequence analyses (bioinformatics), marker development etc.
Interested individuals can look at assignment ET96 at farmertofarmer.crs.org or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. ET51 might also be of interest.

how can I analyze a 3 factor treatment with urea at 5 levels, substrate type at 4 levels and lime at 6 level to compare the yields.there shall be no blocking. how best can i do it and how will be the Anova skeleton table

I am following your tutorial on association mapping with Tassel but I am getting error like taxa already excist in file and duplicate taxa is not allowed while loading data into Tassel. I am requesting you to help me to solve this error.
Thanking you very much

I am a high school science teacher at Mastbaum High School in The School District of Philadelphia who would like to start a student based research project that is based upon the Wisconsin Fast Plants Program. What I had in mind is to generate a new plant hybrid that can be used for Mendelian genetic growing and learning applications. What I am in search of is someone who can assist in prior knowledge on Mendelian genetic research practices applied to plant genetics. By trade, I was a medicinal chemist (21 years) before a career change to a teacher with limited knowledge of laboratory practices in biology. Can you help OR know someone within our local region who can assist me? Also, could you please connect me with someone who is involved with your Multplying Plant, Reproduction and Propagation Program? Thanks, Jim

I am trying to learn R for plant breeding applications but I can't even get past the first few slides of this tutorial: http://pbgworks.org/sites/pbgworks.org/files/RQTLTutorial%20Final.pdf
because I am unable to find and download this example data set?

I would be very much grateful to you if you kindly clarify my confusion. I am working on diversity analysis of sugarcane (51 genotypes) using SSR markers. So far I know that band present in certain genotype is counted as the no. of allele. Suppose SSR marker (SMC 119) produced two fragments e.g. 150 bp and 180 bp. DNA fragment of 150bp found in 20 genotypes. Can I record total no. of band (20) ( produced by SMC 119) is equal to total no. of allele present (20)?
