BIO 578 - Structure and Function of Plant Genomes

Plant molecular genetics based on the study of genome architecture, evolution and function, with emphasis on the fully-sequenced plant genome models. Focuses on the mechanism(s) that drive changes in genome size and structure and how such changes affect gene function in the context of cellular biochemistry and physiology. Current paradigms in genome research by integrating the concepts and techniques of classical genetics, physiology, comparative and functional genomics and transgenics will be discussed. Lec 3.
