A Michigan State University Department of Horticulture course designed to teach the fundamental principles of plant breeding and raise awareness of what plant breeders do. It assumes no previous knowledge of genetics.  The course is built in four parts: 1) A module on what plant breeding is and its importance (Importance of plant breeding), 2) Four modules on the principles of genetics (Principles of inheritance, Simple patterns of inheritance, Quantitative inheritance and Genetic linkage), 3) Four modules on plant breeding methods (Plant breeding methods, Plant breeding strategies, Marker assisted breeding and GM crops), and  4) a module highlighting some excellent plant breeding programs (Plant breeding programs)
