General Information about Lecture, Reading Course and Exams 


We were informed about some problems during listening to the video/audio files of the lecture. This might be caused by some problems in the PowerPoint program.

Please be aware: when you watch the seafile-video, using the arrow key for going backward can cause some compatibility problems. The forward arrow seems to work and the auto text starts normally.

Reading Course Plant Biotechnology

This reading course comprises nine topics related to plant physiology and aims to connect the lecture to basic scientific literature, which you will more and more encounter as you progress further through your curriculum. After reading and integrating your knowledge from the lecture you should be able to answer the questions attached to each topic. Some of these questions are meant more like thought-provoking impulses, so don’t hesitate to hypothesize and think around the box. Please sent brief and concise answers to these questions to pflaphys@rhrk.uni-kl.de until 5 pm of the date indicated in the schedule below. Some courses have an extra intro with additional knowledge provided.
