BIO-8005 Seminar: Molecular Environmental Biology in Microbes and Plants - 5 stp


The course is administrated by

Faculty of Biosciences, Fisheries and Economics

Type of course

Theoretical

Course contents

Subject of the seminar will be molecular biology approaches to analyse the interaction and communication of molecules, cell compartments, cells, microbial communities, microbes and photosynthetic organisms with their respective environments. Examples from ongoing research in the Microorganisms and Plants Research Group will provide the platform for the contributions. Topics include the communication within plant and bacterial cells, communication of cells and organisms with their environment and communication in microbial soil communities as well as plant/microbial and plant/plant associations. Techniques in focus are genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolomic analyses in plants, microbes and microbial communities.

Application deadline

Registration deadline for PhD students at UiT - The Arctic University of Norway: September 1st (for autumn semester)/February 1st (for spring semester).

Application deadline for other applicants: June 1st (for autumn semester)/December 1st (for spring semester).

Language of instruction

English

Teaching methods

Seminar: 40 hours; 10 hours per semester over four semesters. The seminar will be held regularly throughout each semester. It is obligatory for all PhD students within the Microorganisms and Plants group, and is open for other interested PhD students. A formal presentation of research results and a discussion group / journal club will be held at alternating dates.

Schedule:

BIO-8005 Seminar: Molecular Environmental Biology in Microbes and Plants has the same schedule as the master course BIO-3005.


Assessment

Obligatory work: Students must regularly attend the seminar and active participate in discussions to be able to take the exam. 

Exam: 4 oral presentations of research results and current scientific literature over four semesters and assessed during the last semester. Grade: Pass/fail.

There will not be a re-sit exam.


Recommended reading/syllabus

Students will be required to give an active contribution either as presentation of their own research results or as presentation of current relevant scientific literature (e.g. new methods) once per semester, so a total of 4 presentations. Students will furthermore be required to engage in discussions after other presentations.
Lectures Autumn 2018
Schedule: same schedule as BIO-3005.
