Online graduate courses from Colorado State University for students in Weed Science
Online course offering Fall 2021 from Weed Research Laboratory at Colorado State University
- AB 509 Herbicide Selectivity and Action by Todd Gaines and Franck Dayan
- AB 515 Plant Biochemistry in Agriculture by Franck Dayan
There are more details on the links below but the courses are 16 weeks and delivery is asynchronous so the students do work on their own each week but there is no required live meeting time. Each course is $1,872.
AB 509 Herbicide Selectivity and Action by Todd Gaines and Franck Dayan is now programmed for Fall 2021 on our website (The CRN is 69480). Here is the direct link to the course page on the CSU Online website: AB 509 – Herbicide Selectivity and Action
This course will provide students with a learning environment leading to mastery of how herbicides work and are used to manage weeds. To that end, students will become proficient in the mechanisms of action of herbicides and their effects on primary metabolic processes. Students will investigate controversial issues associated with the use of herbicides and genetically modified herbicide-resistant crops.
AB 515 Plant Biochemistry in Agriculture by Franck Dayan is now programmed for Fall 2021 on our website (The CRN is 71607). Here is the direct link to the course page on the CSU Online website: AB 515 - Plant Biochemistry in Agriculture
This course is a graduate level introduction to Plant Biochem for students interested in plant biochemistry but that felt like they were either not prepared for it or afraid to take it from a traditional Biochemistry department. So this course covers the main topics of plant biochemistry but also includes examples of how it is important for agriculture. When appropriate, topics are taught as problem-based situations related to plant production, stress responses, plant-insect or plant-microbe interactions, and chemical ecology. Students will also be introduced to Protein homology modeling and should be quite proficient by the end of the semester.
