MBIO-3600 Phytopathology - Theory

Plants are the main food source on which man and animals depend, either directly or indirectly. Similarly, they are an important source of raw materials for different industries. Fruit farming and flower growing has been an example of agro industrial development in Colombia in recent years, becoming an important line of export. Therefore, the study of the diseases caused by different types of microorganisms that affect different crops, reducing their output, is of great importance. The objective of this course is to train students to work in the field of diagnosing, controlling and researching plant diseases.
