Home /  Courses And Programs / Genetics and Physiology of Photosynthetic Microorganisms


Gain an introduction to the genetics and molecular biology of eukaryotic algae and cyanobacteria. It will cover the background and applications of the genetic and molecular tools required to address challenges of using algae for biofuels applications. Thought experiments for practical application are included and legal and procedural challenges posed by transgenic organisms will be discussed. Recent advances in biotechnology are also covered. Exercises in bioinformatics are developed to familiarize students with commonly used tools in problem solving. Lecture pace and structure is developed in conjunction with the companion laboratory course and synchronized with relevant topics for enriched experience.
