Description

Primarily for the Master’s students specializing in Plant Pathology

Basic knowledge in plant or forest pathology or related disciplines. For lab exercises, basic knowledge in microbiology and gene technology required.

After the course the student knows the most common plant pathogenic bacteria and their control, infection cycles and molecular and taxonomic features. The student understands the theoretical background and can apply in practise the most important diagnostic methods used to detect plant pathogenic bacteria.

Period III, in even years

Biology, morphology, spread and control of bacteria causing plant diseases in cultivated plants. Isolation of plant pathogenic bacteria from diseased samples and identification of the isolates with biochemical and molecular diagnostic methods are included in the practical laboratory exercises.

24 h lectures and group presentations, 30 h laboratory exercises, 30 h preparation of group presentation and 50 h reading for exam.

Grading scale 0-5. Exam 80%, group presentation 20%. Active participation in group work and laboratory exercises is required.

Visiting or exchange students get 3 credits from the course (lectures only).
