After successfully completing this course students will have solid theoretical basis of plant-specific molecular processes. He/she will understand the molecular mechanisms that regulate plant growth and the interaction of plants with the environment. The students will know of the strengths and uses of the model organism Arabidopsis thaliana, including gene identification by forward genetics and gene functional analysis using reverse genetics They will have deepened their knowledge of molecular mechanisms of the tolerance to e.g. light, flooding, drought, high-salinity stresses and the pathways leading to the biosynthesis and remodelling of ligno-cellulosic cell walls in living cells.
After finishing the course and independently preparing for the examination, the student will be able to make predictions on changes in plant morphology, physiology, gene expression, protein and metabolite profiles in response to a given stimulus.
The provided theoretical knowledge on methods for the detection of protein modifications and protein-protein interactions shall enables the student developing working packages for the study of a protein of interest.
