Practical Computing Skills for Omics Data

As datasets have rapidly grown larger in biology, coding has been recognized as an increasingly important skill for biologists. This is especially true in “omics” research with data from e.g. genomics, transcriptomics, and microbiomics, which can usually not be analyzed on a desktop computer, where most software has a command-line interface, and workflows can include many steps that need to be coordinated.

Practical Experiences in Plant Health: Insects & Diseases of Plants

Plants can be attacked by a multitude of pathogens and insects. Each plant within a production region has documented pests that can negatively impact plant health. Environment and production practices can influence the outcome of interactions between pathogens and pests. This is a beginning course for students to learn how to recognize symptoms of economically important pathogens and insects. Prereq: 5603 or Entmlgy 5600, or permission of instructor. Not open to students with credit for Entmlgy 5606. Cross-listed in Entmlgy.

Beneficial Plant-associated Microbiomes and Plant Pathology Research

The study of beneficial interactions between plants and microorganisms and its applications. This course will equip students with an understanding of the phylogenetic and functional diversity of microorganisms associated to plants, the factors influencing beneficial plant-microbial interaction establishment, and the relevance of managing these interactions in different environments. A basic course in plant biology can also fulfil the prerequisite. Prereq: 3001, Micrbio 4000, or 4100, or permission of instructor.
