Course objectives
The aim of the subject of Plant Physiology is the study of system processes that allow to live and survive the plant in the given environment. The emphasis of the subject for DSP students is mainly focused on plant cell physiology and primary and secondary metabolism of plants and the importance of these metabolites in interactions between plants and between plants and the environment. Attention is focused on the secondary metabolites studied in DSP work and their relevance to the plant.
Learning outcomes
The graduate is familiar with the physiology of primary and secondary metabolism of plants, has an overview of the basic molecular-biological methods used in the study of plant physiology. Can actively work with literature of a given focus and present it.
Syllabus
  • The content of the course is the physiology of plants, ie a system of processes that allow you to live and survive in a given environment. The emphasis of the course for DSP students is mainly on the physiology of the plant cell and the primary and secondary metabolism of plants and the importance of metabolites in interactions between plants and between plants and the environment.
    Orientation syllabus:
    - Plant cell physiology
    - Primary and secondary metabolism of plants from the point of view of molecular biology
    - Methods of studying primary and secondary metabolism of plants molecular-biological approach
    - Origin and evolution of secondary metabolism of plants and its co-evolution with other organisms
    - Secondary metabolites and interactions of plants with the environment and other plants. Physiology of stress.
    - Secondary metabolites of plants as important signaling molecules
    - Significance of secondary metabolites in the life cycle of plants. Teaching includes participation in educational events organized by the Dept. of Natural Drugs.
