|英文名称： Molecular Entomology and Plant Pathology
This course will cover the basis of modern agriculture biotechnology, molecular entomology and plant pathology. In the first part, we will explain the importance of insect science and its impact on agriculture, forest, and human health. We will also discuss several important aspects of molecular insect such as metabolism, endocrinology, immunity, locomotors system etc. The basic knowledge of insect physiology, molecular biology, and biochemistry, which were used to study entomology, will be provided during the class. The second part of the course will give students the general view of the history and development of plant pathology. Particularly, the concepts of plant innate immunity and plant epidemiology will be introduced and emphasized, including PAMPs triggered immunity, effector triggered immunity and basal defense of plants. In addition, plant pathogen isolation and identification and plant protection will be discussed in the course.
