BIOL 456 - Plant Molecular Biology

(4.00)
This course is focused on exploring the molecular mechanisms underlying plant physiology and development and is designed to foster interactive learning. The course begins with a brief review of some important principles and techniques in Molecular Biology and Genetics. A session focusing on familiarizing students with multiple bioinformatics tools via a comprehensive group project is followed. Then the course pursues in depth several topics, such as meristems, flower and embryo development, the circadian clock, signal transduction of environmental cues, hormonal regulation of gene expression and development, host-pathogen interactions, applications of genetic engineering, and other current/hot topics. Molecular genetic approaches using model plant systems are stressed throughout the course. Note:This course is Writing Intensive.
