AbstractLab course. In small groups projects of relevance to current research questions in the field of plant-microbe interactions are addressed.
ObjectiveIntroduction to relevant subjects of the biology of plant-associated microorganisms. Training in practical work in a research laboratory. Exposure to current research topics in the field of plant-microbe interactions. Scientific writing in form of a research report.
ContentResearch project on plant-associated microorganisms (i.e. Bradyrhizobium, Methylobacterium, Sphingomonas). The techniques used will depend on the project, e.g. PCR, cloning, community analysis, plant inoculation experiments, phenotypic analysis, plant transformation, (fluorescence) microscopy, monitoring gene expression
Lecture notesnone
LiteratureWill be provided for each of the projects at the beginning of the course.
