Course content

This multidisciplinary course will equip you with the skills to tackle the problems that lie at the interface between plant and physical science, on a molecular level.

Advances in the understanding of biomolecular processes have often depended upon the collaborative efforts of biochemists, chemists and physicists.

This course will enable you to bridge the gap that can exist between the physical and plant science disciplines due to differences in language, perspective and methodology.

You will receive training from both academic and industrial leaders in the plant and chemical biology fields.

At the end of this course graduates will be ideally placed to undertake PhD studies in collaborative multidisciplinary plant chemical biology, or to seek employment within the agri-science industrial sector.
