Mykologins grunder och tillämpningar

The course content consists of preparatory literature reading, literature discussions, and presentations in selected areas, as well as a mini-microscopy lab; thus active participation by the students is required. The basic concepts will be complemented by in-depth research examples from SLU scientists. A current mycology text book entitled "The Fungi" will serve as a reference for the course, in combination with a selection of research papers.

Förkunskapskrav

Applicants must be admitted to PhD studies within the natural sciences. Priority will be given to PhD students associated with the SLU Graduate School in Organism Biology.

Mål

This intensive course aims to provide students with basic mycological concepts (e.g., taxonomy, physiology, genetics, etc.) as well as in-depth research examples in the form of lectures within selected areas of mycology. After the course, the students should have reached a higher understanding of basic principles of mycology and how these apply to more in-depth areas of study, including their areas of research. The course will also offer the students opportunities to discuss methods and tools suitable for future work within the area.

Examinationsformer och fordringar för godkänd kurs

At the end of the course, the students will participate in "chalk talks" in which they will discuss what they have learned during the course and how it could be applied or is relevant to their own research projects. Other members from the research community at SLU will be invited to serve as the student’s audience.
