ENTOM 885 - Conventional and Molecular Methods for Evaluation of Crop Plant Resistance to Pests

Credits: 2

A series of laboratories illustrating different modes of plant resistance to pests, quantification of resistance effects, resistance gene flow, plant DNA isolation & quantification, and molecular marker-assisted selection of resistance genes of interest. Students develop hands-on experience using both conventional and molecular techniques to identify and quantify genetic plant resistance to pests.

One hour lecture and two hours lab a week.

Prerequisite: ENTOM 635 or PLPTH 635 and ENTOM 745 or PLPTH 755.
