Cursusdoelen

After following this course, you can:

  • interpret scientific findings regarding molecular plant stress physiology using current knowledge and concepts in this field and draw your own conclusions
  • evaluate the goals and strategies of fundamental and applied research on plant stress adaptation and define your own opinion on their validity and feasibility
  • structure knowledge in this field such that you can develop valid hypotheses for further scientific research
  • present scientific findings comprehensively and such that MSc biology students can follow the reasoning
Inhoud

In nature, plants have to deal with a constantly changing environment and sub-optimal growth conditions. Among others, this relates to factors such as the ambient temperature and the availability of water, oxygen, nutrients and other compounds. Being sessile organisms plants have little opportunity for stress avoidance, explaining why a relatively large part of the genome is thought to be dedicated to stress adaptation. In this caput series we discuss how plants adapt to various forms of abiotic stress at the physiological and molecular level. The emphasis lies on current developments in fundamental research and biotechnological application; as such the course includes discussions of recent research papers, guest lectures by specialists in the field and an excursion to a plant biotech company.

Onderwerpen
Acclimation and adaptation to three abiotic stress factors will be discussed in detail.
