Transcript of "Putting Research into Practice: The Plant Breeding and Genomics Community of Practice"

  1. 1. Putting Research Into Practice: The Plant Breeding and Genomics Community of Practice on eXtension<br />Heather Merk (presenter), John McQueen (presenter), Ed Zaborski, Michael Coe, David Douches, Alex Stone, Allen Van Deynze, Deana Namuth-Covert, Roger Leigh, Walter De Jong, and David Francis<br />
  2. 2. Plant Breeding & Genomics CoP<br />Outreach and education initiative of the Solanaceae Coordinated Agricultural Project (SolCAP)<br />NIFA funded project under the Plant Breeding, Genetics, and Genomics Program<br />Community ofinterest: public and private plant breeders and their staff (including researchers and educators)<br />Includes leaders from eOrganicCoP<br />Target audience - professional plant breeders and allied professionals <br />Launched January, 2011<br />
  3. 3. Initial Community Survey<br />Prior to CoP formation<br />Conducted by external evaluator<br />IRB approved online survey<br />Sent to SolCAP target audience<br />108 tomato breeders and allied professionals responded<br />66 potato breeders and allied professionals responded<br />Baseline survey<br />Assess what audience is thinking about molecular markers<br />Do they use?<br />Intention to use?<br />How confident are they in using them?<br />Allows for future assessment of reported changes in behavior<br />
  4. 4. Additional Training & Tools Recommended<br />Self-reported comments<br />Training<br />Format: In-person workshops, online<br />Focus: new technologies, applied learning<br />Tools<br />Databases that include marker information, marker-trait associations, mapping information, sequence information<br />i.e. tools to allow application of basic research<br />
  5. 5. Goal of PBG CoP<br />Put genomics research and tools into practice through plant breeding by:<br /><ul><li>Presenting unbiased, science-based, and peer-reviewed content
  6. 6. Sharing the most current, relevant, and accurate information available on techniques, procedures, and software</li></ul>Show the community how<br /><ul><li>Fostering collaboration among members of the plant breeding and genomics community</li></li></ul><li>Collaboration<br />Currently collaborating with 3 other CAP projects<br />Gives potential to reach wider professional audience, engage multiple communities of interest<br />
  7. 7. www.eXtension.org/plant_breeding_genomics<br />
  8. 8. Trait Reviews<br /><ul><li>Demonstrate the use of genomics research for crop improvement
  9. 9. Value added information for practicing breeders (summary tables, markers)
