Course objectives
This course is aimed at elucidation of genetic and molecular aspects of the basic principles of Angiosperm, such as reproduction, sex determination, male sterility, incompatibility, polyploidy, haploidy, mutations, heterosis, disease resistance, wide hybridization, plant biotechnology and transgenosis, molecular markers.
Syllabus
