SILVA PhD course: Wood Biology and Biotechnology, 5 ECTS

Mon. 19 Feb, 2024 0:00 - Sat. 24 Feb, 2024 0:00

Development of novel wood-based products requires an understanding of the biological processes that lead to wood cell differentiation including cell division, expansion, secondary cell wall formation and programmed cell death. Currently though there is a lack of complete and updated information on these topics in a form of a book.

This PhD course will fill this gap and provide an overview of these biological processes, explaining how they lead to developing different kinds of wood, and how they affect wood traits of economic importance. Lectures and seminars are given by world experts in the field. Current tools for studying wood biology, wood structure, wood mechanics and wood chemical composition are introduced with practical demonstrations. Bioinformatics tools to answer student’s biological question on wood biology will be introduced and practiced during a training session. Social evening activities along with research project poster presentations by the students will allow free interactions and discussions among the students and the lecturers. The course literature is consisted of approx. 20 research and review papers suggested by the lecturers.
