MPS Plant Biotechnology

Plant Biotechnology is a set of methods used to adapt plants for specific needs or opportunities. Gene editing is one of these technologies and is becoming widely used in agribusiness research and development. This specialization provides skills not only in plant gene editing, but also plant propagation, and molecular tools needed for jobs in this area. Suggested courses for this specialization include:

  • Molecular Biology & Genetic Engineering of Plants
  • Molecular Biology & Genetic Engineering of Plants Lab
  • Advanced Analytical Methods for Plant Systems
  • Concepts and Techniques in Computational Biology
