Plant Molecular Genetics (NBID22)
The course treats the life processes of plants, such as flowering, embryogenesis, seed germination, differentiation, metabolism and photosynthesis. The course also includes plant genomes and genetics, inter- and intracellular signaling, adaptation of plants to biotic and abiotic stresses. The course is focused on model organisms for current plant biology research, such as Arabidopsis thaliana. Experimental approaches used in current plant biology research are introduced in theory and in practice.
The aim of the course is to provide knowledge of the structure, physiology, metabolism and genetics of plants and to introduce experimental approaches and methodology commonly used in current plant molecular biology research. After completing the course the participant will be able to account for
- the life processes of the plant from seed to seed
- how the plant cope with abiotic and biotic stresses
- photosynthesis and metabolism of plants.
After the completed course the participant will also be able to describe and analyse
- the use of model organisms in current plant biology research
- the major research areas and methodologies within current plant molecular biology and genetics
