Want to learn about genebanks (and much much more)?

Thanks to funding from a USDA-NIFA-Higher Education Challenge Grant Program, the good folks at Colorado State University are offering a new online course on Plant Genetic Resources- Genomes, Genebanks, and Growers. You will:

  1. Discover the origins of plant genetic resources
  2. Appreciate the role they play in global food systems
  3. Learn about plant domestication and diversification
  4. Understand their genetic properties and the forces that shape them
  5. Explore geographic patterns of plant diversity

It looks great. Find out more here. Starts in August. I’m kinda tempted to take it myself…
