|Kurzbeschreibung||The advanced course introduces students to plants through a concept-based discussion of developmental processes that integrates physiology and biochemistry with genetics, molecular biology, and cell biology. The course follows the life of the plant, starting with the seed, progressing through germination to the seedling and mature plant, and ending with reproduction and senescence.|
|Lernziel||The new course "Molecular Life of Plants" reflects the rapid advcances that are occurring in the field of experimental plant biology as well as the changing interests of students being trained in this discipline. Contemporary plant biology courses emphasize a traditional approach to experimental plant biology by discussing discrete topics that are removed from the context of the plant life cycle. The course will take an integrative approach that focuses on developmental concepts. Whereas traditional plant physiology courses were based on research carried out on intact plants or plant organs and were often based on phenomenological observations, current research in plant biology emphasizes work at the cellular, subcellular and molecular levels. |
The goal of "Molecular Life of Plants" is to train students in integrative approaches to understand the function of plants in a developmental context. While the course focuses on plants, the training integrative approaches will also be useful for other organisms.
|Inhalt||The course "Molecular Life of Plants" will cover the following topics in a developmental context:|
Plant genome organization
Food reserves and mobilization
Heterotrophic to autotrophic growth
Chlorophyll biosynthesis, photoreceptors
Integration of metabolism
Cell differentiation and expansion
Flower development and fertilization
Embryo and seed development
|551-0351-00L||Membrane Biology |
Number of participants limited to 18.
The enrolment is done by the D-BIOL study administration.
|6 KP||7G||V. Korkhov, Y. Barral, U. Kutay, A. Rodriguez-Villalon, G. Schertler|
|Kurzbeschreibung||The course will introduce the students to the key concepts in membrane biology and will allow them to be involved in laboratory projects related to that broad field. The course will consist of lectures, literature discussions, and practical laboratory work in small groups. Results of the practical projects will be presented during the poster session at the end of the course.|
|Lernziel||The aim of the course is to expose the students to a wide range of modern research areas encompassed by the field of membrane biology.|
|Inhalt||Students will be engaged in research projects aimed at understanding the biological membranes at the molecular, organellar and cellular levels. Students will design and perform experiments, evaluate experimental results, analyze the current scientific literature and understand the relevance of their work in the context of the current state of the membrane biology field.|
|Literatur||The recommended literature, including reviews and primary research articles, will be provided during the course|
|Voraussetzungen / Besonderes||The course will be taught in English. All general lectures will be held at ETH Hoenggerberg. Students will be divided into small groups to carry out experiments at ETH or at the Paul Scherrer Institute. Travel to the Paul Scherrer Institute will be by public transportation.|
