K-State plant pathologists develop online teaching modules used globally
Date:7/14/2009

visitors from more than 100 countries have accessed these modules. Because these training modules are free, Garrett said that they are particularly valuable to students in remote areas with fewer local resources.

The modules are designed to teach principles of modeling and statistics that help scientists and agriculturists understand disease epidemics. Garrett said that this type of modeling could help policymakers understand how climate change can affect a particular plant disease, prompting a change in the strategies countries use to deal with the disease.
