Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Aim of the course is to demonstrate the relationship between biosynthesis and expression of specialized ("secondary") plant metabolites in an ecological context. Structural features are presented shortly, and functional aspects are addressed. Selected case studies highlight biotic and abiotic interactions, complemented by examples of current research.

Students are able to address important compound classes of secondary metabolites and their representatives that are essential for survival of plants in their enviroment.

Assessment and permitted materials

Written exam

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Positive credit with more than 50% of possible maximum points

Examination topics

Basic knowledge of major biosynthetic routes of special plant metabolism; ecological significance of major compound classes and their representatives.
