INNER LIFE OF PLANTS
Credit points: 15
Inner Life of Plants explores the use of physiological and modern molecular techniques to study plant biology, with an emphasis on the analysis and explanation of the cellular processes that control the development, growth and productivity of plants. The ability of plants to acquire nutrients is investigated through hands-on practical experiments. The physiology component builds on concepts introduced in first year biology subjects, and is further developed in a series of hands-on practicals. The application of new molecular techniques is explored using real-life examples in the lectures, and a number of closely aligned practicals.
