IB 512: Plant Metabolomics

Course Details

Description: Plants are sessile organisms that must respond dynamically to environmental signals. Key to their response and survival is the intricate network of metabolic pathways that result in the differential accumulation of metabolites. This course will familiarize students with the fundamentals of plant metabolomics research. Metabolomics is presented in relation to plant development, nutrition, and response to stress, among other topics. Students will use online tools to analyze, organize, and visualize metabolomics data. Course goals include a critical evaluation of a current topic in plant metabolomics and how metabolomics technology can enhance their own research objectives. Prerequisites: Graduate student status or consent of instructor. At least one upper level undergraduate course in biochemistry or its equivalent.
