It is essential for scientists to understand how research can address real-world challenges and visualize all the steps involved. Students will make a synthesis of the techniques learned on campus (PLSCI 4300) with their application to the vineyards of Chile (PLSCI 4301). The latest cutting-edge molecular diagnostic techniques and speculation on future methods will be analyzed.
When Offered Spring (weeks 1-7).
