Inhalt The colloquium “Challenges in Plant Sciences” is a core class of the Zurich-Basel Plant Science Center's PhD program and the MSc module. The colloquium introduces participants to the broad spectrum of plant sciences within the network. The topics encompass integrated knowledge on current plant research, ranging from the molecular level to the ecosystem level, and from basic to applied science while making use of the synergies between the different research groups within the PSC. The course offers the opportunity to approach interdisciplinary topics as challenges in the field of plant sciences.

During the first course day, each involved PSC lecturer gives a short talk as a general introduction to her/his research field highlighting current challenges and provides a publication on a new method in the field. After the first day, the students work in groups to design a hypothetical experiment on the chosen topic following the scientific method. They receive feedback from the tutor during the preparation phase. On the second day, the students present how they would approach the chosen challenge in the field, including the hypothesis, new method, and interpretation of the hypothetically generated data. Students gain knowledge on topics beyond their own research area while gaining a better understanding of the scientific method and practicing presentation and discussion skills.
Lernziele - Introduce PhD and Master students to the broad field of plant sciences
- Promote active participation and independent student work
- Practice the scientific method and experimental design
- Enhance presentation and discussion skills
- Increase interactions among students and teachers
- Promote an interdisciplinary and integrative teaching program
