Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2020-2021.

This course will provide a foundation in Digital Plant Science by introducing major questions and opportunities to be addressed in digital plant science (DPS). Weekly case studies will be taught by different Cornell faculty experts who are working in the area of DPS. Meeting twice weekly, Tuesday lectures and class discussions will introduce the faculty expert's subdiscipline of DPS research, followed by a DPS research presented by the same faculty expert on Thursday of the same week. Thus, the Tuesday lecture will provide the needed scientific background enabling students to understand the Thursday seminar content. This new DPS seminar series will be required for all NRT-funded graduate trainees, but will be open to all graduate students, faculty, and staff across the Cornell campus.
