TM Cellular Plant Biochemistry and Genetics

BIO-M-TM-CPBG

Detailed module description - pdf

Prof. Dr. Thomas Dresselhaus

Module contents
Lectures
  • Current topics in plant molecular biology and genetics (e.g. mechanisms of gene regulation, influence of the environment: biotic interactions and stress);
  • Current topics in cell biology and biochemistry of plants (e.g. chromatin, signalling, cell polarity, cell-cell communication and cell fusion);
  • Current topics in plant biotechnology (e.g. transformation methods and tissue culture, breeding traits and methods, safety research);
  • Approaches and methods to investigate research topics in the field of plant cellular biochemistry and genetics;
Seminar
  • Presentation and discussion of a research based topic in the field of plant cellular biochemistry and genetics.
Module components
  1. at least two lectures in the field of cellular biochemistry of plants (for a selection see LSF)
  2. one seminar in the field of plant cellular biochemistry and genetics (for a selection see LSF)

In the seminar a seminar presentation has to be held and registered in Flexnow as an ungraded study achievement (Studienleistung).

Module examination
