Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

This course is the first of a two-semester sequence (with PLBIO 4841) which together provide a broad overview of concepts related to the study of plant molecular biology. It is intended to bring first-year graduate students in plant molecular biology to a common background in genetics, biochemistry and phylogenetics. The second-semester course covers anatomy, cell biology and development. These courses are also appropriate for upper-level students in Plant Biology and Plant Sciences.

When Offered Fall.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: PLBRG 2250 and PLBRG 3250, or BIOMG 2800; BIOMG 3300 or BIOMG 3310 or BIOMG 3330 or BIOMG 3350.

  • Bring students from diverse backgrounds and interests to a common level of understanding in preparation for subsequent courses and research in areas related to plant molecular biology.
  • Explain, give relevant examples of, and make predictions based on their understanding of fundamental concepts from biochemistry, genetics and phylogeny.
  • Integrate these same concepts into their understanding and interpretation of experimental techniques and interpretation of results.
  • Articulate how experimental techniques constrain interpretation of experimental data.
  • Become more adept at using one's understanding to objectively read and evaluate current literature.
