BIO-3005 Seminar: Molecular Environmental Biology in Microbes and Plants - 5 stp
Subject of the seminar will be molecular biology approaches to analyse the interaction and communication of molecules, cell compartments, cells, microbial communities, microbes and photosynthetic organisms with their respective environments. Examples from ongoing research in the Molecular Environments Research Group will provide the platform for the contributions. Topics include the communication within plant and bacterial cells, communication of cells and organisms with their environment and communication in microbial soil communities as well as plant/microbial and plant/plant associations. Techniques in focus are genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolomic analyses in plants, microbes and microbial communities.
Objective of the course
Students that have completed Bio-3005:
- can present their research results using state of the art media
- are able to exercise constructive critisism in discussion fora
- can explain scientific work (own or from literature) to fellow students and researchers
Students must regularly attend the biweekly seminar, and have an active participation in discussions. At least one oral presentation of research results during three semesters. Grade type: pass / fail
