BIO 5061 - Plant Physiology

Credits: 4

The focus of this course is on nutrient uptake and translocation, nutrient deficiency symptoms, plant primary and secondary metabolism, physiological responses to biotic and abiotic stresses, hormones and signal transduction, and defense and immune responses. The laboratory component of this course will provide opportunities for students to get hands-on experience and assess plants physiological behavior by determining metabolite content, enzyme activity, and studying hormones and nutrients.

Graduate students will be assigned to lead a class discussion on a review paper related to the topic of this course. Graduate students will be also responsible to lead one of the lab experiments for this course, analyze and interpret data, justify the results, and write the report.
