Plant Growth and Development
Information from the course leader
The course objectives are to introduce advanced university studies, provide an overview of the syllabus of the master-program, its content, and structure, provide the students with working skills that prepare them for further studies and future work.
After completing the course the students should be able to:
- list the different phythormones and describe their modes of action
- describe the way plant face biotic and abiotic stresses
- describe and list molecular players involved in plant development and response to environment.
The course will give an introduction on anatomy and plant development. The course will provide the students with a basic knowledge on plant -signaling, -response to stress and environment.
The course lectures, exercises and lab work cover:
- basic plant biology, including plant physiology, metabolomic, genetics, and molecular genetics
- scientific presentations, in oral and in writing
The course evaluation is now closed
Once the evaluation is closed, the course coordinator and student representative have 1 month to draft their comments. The comments will be published in the evaluation report.

Formats and requirements for examinationxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
- If the student fails a test, the examiner may give the student a supplementary assignment, provided this is possible and there is reason to do so.
- If the student has been granted special educational support because of a disability, the examiner has the right to offer the student an adapted test, or provide an alternative assessment.
- If changes are made to this course syllabus, or if the course is closed, SLU shall decide on transitional rules for examination of students admitted under this syllabus but who have not yet passed the course.
- For the examination of a degree project (independent project), the examiner may also allow the student to add supplemental information after the deadline. For more information on this, please refer to the regulations for education at Bachelor's and Master's level.
- The right to take part in teaching and/or supervision only applies to the course date to which the student has been admitted and registered on.

The final grade is based on the individual's performance in the examination as well as in the mandatory seminars and practicals. In order to pass the course all mandatory elements have to be fulfilled.
The module is examined by written exam in the end of the course.
Seminars are examined with active participation in mandatory scheduled activities and a presentation in the end of the course, where deep understanding of the presented original research activity is expected. Student who fail in the presentation will be offered a second opportunity after the course and if wanted the possibility to give the seminar the following time the course is given.
The module is examined with active participation in mandatory scheduled activities and reports to be handed in before the end of the course.
Final grade is decided when all of the three modules have been done and individual grades for the modules are decided.
