Page 2 of 5 Students will become familiar with various molecular, genetic, biochemical and physiological techniques used to understand how plants respond to both biotic and abiotic stress. Course Description and Format: How plants’ sense and respond at the genetic, molecular, biochemical and phenotypic levels to environmental stress, such as drought, salinity, cold and disease will be discussed. The application of this basic scientific information in biotechnological strategies for improving crop yields and crop disease resistance will also be addressed. Pre-requisites: Bio 2B03, 2C03, 2D03
