To examine recent advances in plant biology research and, where appropriate, the implications of this research for biotechnological applications. Seminar topics may include any aspect of plant development and plant response to its biotic and abiotic environment.
This course examines recent advances in plant biology research and their potential for biotechnological applications. Topics covered in the course include how plants respond to pathogenic signals, and how plant cells sense sugar signals. Recommended preparatory course(s): BIOL352.
As a student in this course, I will develop the ability to:demonstrate a sophisticated understanding and evaluation of experimental design, methodology and data in the field of plant biotechnology. (assessment task: internal assessment) access and critically assess the scientific literature in plant developmental and stress biology. (assessment task: internal assessment)develop and trial my own “teaching to learn” techniques. (task: class presentations)Transferable Skills RegisterAs a student in this course, I will develop the following skills:An ability to manage in a team work environment. Most jobs require interactions with others to accomplish a task to a particular standard and on time.
