Specialisation Functional Plant Genomics

Genomics profoundly affects plant molecular biology and genetics. Genomic information on Arabidopsis and rice has revolutionised insight into plant genomics. By using array technology, gene expression can be studied to improve our understanding of the complexity of the plant transcriptome and interactions between genes and gene products.


Courses for the specialisation Functional Plant Genomics are listed in the online Study Handbook.
