In the spring semester, Prof. Baars teaches a course on “Signaling and Interactions in the Phytobiome”
(PP590 and PP790). The course teaches mechanisms and consequences of signaling and metabolic
interactions involved in symbioses between plants and their microbial and arthropod partners. Lectures
cover concepts and specific examples of well-studied interactions. A section of the course is dedicated
to current developments in analytical methods, including metabolomics, and experimental approaches.
The course is intended for graduate and advanced undergraduate students. Learning objectives and a
tentative course schedule can be found here.
