UP-304Symbiotic Systems6 ECTSPeriod P3bUP
Objectives:Advance Research seminars on the different consequences of symbiotic interactions on animals and plants at the level of the cell (e.g. metabolism, cellular cycle), of the organism (e.g. immune response, reproduction, phenotype), of population (e.g. population dynamics). This unit leads to a better understanding of the important role of symbionts on multicellular organisms evolution for instance the different levels of selection that are governing host symbiont interactions.

Outcomes:Advance knowledge on research in symbiotic interactions, from cellular to population level. Be able to design experimental study to address question on symbiosis functioning and evolution.
