- Course objectives
- At the end of this course student should be able to:
summarize molecular principles underlying physiological processes in plants, regulation of plant development, reproduction and adaptation;
explain principle of molecular farming;
describe fundamental principles of basic plant physiological processes.
- Molecular determination of plant and cell architecture; Cell reproduction - genome organization and expression, protein synthesis, assembly and degradation, cell division regulation; Molecular basis of energy flow in plants - photosynthesis, respiration and photorespiration; Molecular principles of metabolic and developmental integration - long distance transport (molecular determination of xylem and phloem development and function, structure and function of plasmodesmata, intercellular transport of endogenous macromolecules), biosynthesis and action of hormones and elicitors, phytochrome, photomorphogenic responses, signal perception and transduction, vegetative and reproductive development, senescence and programmed cell death; Molecular farming - plant environment and architecture (response to plant pathogens, responses to abiotic stresses, molecular physiology of mineral nutrient acquisition, transport, and utilization), metabolic engineering of natural products, e.g. secondary metabolites.
