DESCRIPTION OF COURSES
NEM 604 ADVANCED MOLECULAR NEMATOLOGY (3L+0P) I
To understand the advances in gene expression, plant defense system, host resistance, host recognition survival and ageing of nematodes at molecular level.
Nucleic acids – structure and functional properties, replication, transcription, translation, protein synthesis
Caenorhabditis elegans – model nematode for nematode genetics, physiology and genomics.
Plant defense systems, cytological and biochemical changes in host plants induced by nematode feeding
Resistance, genetics of resistance, molecular basis of host resistance, cloned resistance genes against plant parasitic nematodes, molecular changes in nematode feeding cells.
Host recognition, chemoreception, survival and ageing
RNA interference, promoters for specific gene expression and novel approaches for nematode management
