Microbial Horticulture

Microbes in horticultural value networks are traditionally linked to two major domains, the environment and food. This course takes care of this fact in the 11 modules. Each module consists of class room lectures and exercises. Excursions occur in some of them.

In contrast to other courses in microbiology on an advanced level, this course is eligible also to students who have not enrolled into basic microbiology classes during BSc studies. To merge students with and without pre-knowledge in microbiology, the first week will entail propedeutics, for the newcomers to get set and for the ones with pre-knowledge to have some repetition. This course is given as a 100% course and the team of course teachers and instructors are expecting that course literature and the lab manual is read as a preparation to lectures and exercises. Supporting study material, e.g., video clips, presentations, are therefore found on this course homepage. We therefore also offer quizzes to some of the lectures before the lecture takes place; some of these are graded, others are pass/fail.
