The Danish and global plant production is facing major challenges. Plant production is central in the on-going green transition made necessary by climate changes, because it can deliver solutions to it, but also because crop productivity is highly affected by climate changes. In addition, rapid population growth requires new solutions to secure sufficient amounts of food and, in particular, plant-based food. There are also strong political goals that future plant production can take place with minimal applications of pesticides and fertilizers. In effect, plant production is developing into a far more dynamic and demanding scenario in the food-, feed-, non-food-, and bioenergy area. Plant biotechnology plays a major role in meeting the demands created by this scenario through knowledge on plant genomes, advanced molecular breeding, genome editing and development of genetic modified organisms (GMO).

The course intends to provide the students with experience in advanced molecular techniques used in modern plant science and biotechnology through an intensive two-week course.
