Course number: ENTOM 885

Delivery Method: On Campus  Credits: 2

Description: Offered in odd years. A series of laboratories illustrating different modes of of plant resistance to pests, quantification of resistance affects, 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 molecualr techniques to identify and quantify genetic plant resistance to pests. One hour lecture and two hours lab a week.
