In this course, we will learn the progress of genetic recombination technology and breeding engineering as the main theme. Through case studies, we will add commentary not only to understand the fundamental technology of molecular breeding, but also to look at the historical background and ripple effects of that technology.
By learning this course, you will be able to understand and explain how genetic recombination technology has evolved and how it has been applied in the field of breeding.
The final grade is calculated by totaling the evaluation of your approach at the time of exercise (quantity and quality of presentation) and the evaluation of the final issue report. The focus of the assignment evaluation is not only on what is written in the text, but also on the bibliographies that you compiled, summarized, and devised further to convey to the audience and readers.
|Textbook||Textbooks are not used. Printed teaching materials will be distributed as necessary.|
Printed teaching materials will be distributed in advance. Students should attend classes after reading them.
In this course, we will proceed with exercises based on reference materials in English.
