Primary Instructor:

This is a project lab in which students learn to identify and analyze plant genes and gene products using the latest techniques of molecular biology. Emphasis will be on genes encoding unique plant characteristics. Students will first isolate genes from DNA libraries of various plant species. They will then analyze the sequence of genes they have isolated by DNA sequencing, and will characterize their expression levels by various techniques. The genes will then be manipulated to produce the gene products (i.e., proteins) in a bacterial system.
