Methods in Plant Molecular Biology Research

Course time: Wednesday 09:10 ~ 12:10 AM
Class location: Student Lab 904, 9th Floor, Life Science Building
[Course Overview]

This course covers the topics on the methods and approaches used in plant molecular biology. Emphasis is given on how modern molecular biology tools have been applied to study various plant biology topics. Lectures are combined with literature reading, students’ presentation and discussion. Towards the end of the semester, each student is also required to write a research proposal.
