I currently teach One course in Plant Pathology:

PlPa 602 – The Plant viruses and aphid vector transmission
Spring 2008
10:10 – 11:00 Tuesdays and Thursdays
2:30-4:25 Tuesdays
336 Plant Science Building

PLPA602 will focus on the biology of fungal, oomycete, prokaryotic, nematode, and viral plant pathogens with an emphasis on ecology, evolution and population level concepts. Organismal level concepts will be integrated and presented in our discussions of various disease systems. This course serves as one of the core courses for graduate students in the Field of Plant Pathology & Plant-Microbe Biology and is meant to complement concepts and supporting information introduced and covered in the other core courses: PLPA 301, PLPA 470, and PLPA 601. The target audience is advanced undergraduates and graduate students in pursuit of a Ph.D. degree in plant pathology or a related field. Weekly discussion sections and readings will provide an opportunity for more in-depth consideration of disease systems and case studies.

Course objectives:
1) To integrate organismal and population concepts for understanding the biology of fungal, oomycete, prokaryotic (bacterial), nematode, and viral plant pathogens.
2) To develop critical thinking skills in analyzing disease systems, formulating research questions and reviewing scientific literature.
