This is a self-guided course exploring comparative genomics. The course is geared towards scientists and students with an awareness of DNA structure, recombinant DNA technologies, DNA sequencing, and plant breeding. The course is intended for plant breeders, molecular biologists, and other plant scientists who are associated with, but not fully engaged in, genomics research – in the hope of providing them information to improve understanding of current research in the field and the implications.
