Syllabus:

This course explores the use of biotechnology to both generate genetic variation in plants and to understand how factors at the cellular level contribute to the expression of genotypes and hence to phenotypic variation. There is an emphasis on the molecular mechanisms directing plant gene expression under diverse environmental and developmental stimuli. This knowledge is central to our ability to modify plant responses and properties for global food security and commercial gains in biotechnology and agriculture. A problem-based learning approach is employed to demonstrate the use of various omics technologies (such as genomics, proteomics and metabolomics) to gain this knowledge. In the laboratory classes, students will perform some of the techniques currently used to generate information and detect genetic variation. The key concepts of the course will be integrated in a series of case studies, and students will enhance their ability to apply them to novel situations in problem-solving sessions and their own research planning project.
