2010 Cold Spring Harbor Course
MOLECULAR TECHNIQUES IN PLANT SCIENCE
July 2 - 22, 2010
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, New York
Application Deadline: March 15 
Instructors: Stacey Harmer, Robert Last, Julin Maloof

This course provides an intensive overview of topics in plant
physiology, biochemistry and development, focusing on molecular genetic
and analytical approaches to understanding plant biology. It emphasizes
recent results from Arabidopsis, maize and a variety of other plants and
provides an introduction to current methods used in plant molecular
biology. It is designed for scientists with some experience in molecular
techniques or in plant biology who wish to work with plants using the
latest technologies in genetics, molecular biology and biochemistry. The
course consists of a vigorous lecture series, a hands-on laboratory, and
informal discussions. Discussions of important topics in plant research
will be presented by the instructors and by invited speakers. These
seminars will include plant morphology and anatomy; plant development
(such as development of flowers, leaves, male and female gametophytes,
and roots); perception of light and photomorphogenesis; cell wall
biosynthesis, function and perception of hormones and application of
research results to addressing current agronomic problems. Lectures
describing bioinformatics tools available to the plant community, and
the resources provided by plant genome projects are also included.
Speakers will provide overviews of their fields, followed by in-depth
discussions of their own work. The laboratory sessions will provide an
introduction to important techniques currently used in plant research.
These include studies of plant development, mutant analysis,
histochemical staining, transient gene expression, gene silencing,
applications of fluorescent protein fusions, protein interaction and
detection, proteomics approaches, several different approaches for
quantifying metabolites, transient transformation and techniques
commonly used in genetic and physical mapping. The course also includes
several short workshops on important themes in plant research.
