Introduction

Almeria, the leading European region in terms of fruits and vegetable production and exportation, is emerging as a prominent innovation hub for greenhouse technology and production. In the field of plant breeding, Almería concentrates a significant portion of the total horticulture seed business activity among the world. Indeed, the most notable Spanish and international companies are based in Almeria, producing novel horticultural varieties through intensive research and development programs. These novel varieties ”made in Almeria” are not only used in this Spanish region but also exported and cultivated in many different greenhouses all over the world. The area of Genetics at the University of Almería is in close collaboration with the seed companies and the productive system of Almería. More precisely, the HORTICULTURAL GENETICS research group accumulates more than 25 years of experience focusing on research and teaching activities in the field of plant biotechnology and breeding. The goal of the present course is to share our theoretical and practical knowledge regarding the biotechnology methods and tools widely used in horticultural crops breeding and production. To do so, our multidisciplinary group encompass the fields of genetics, plant physiology, plant production and food technology allowing us to perform high-throughput plant phenotyping for abiotic and biotic stress tolerance, nutrients, drought and salinity tolerance, and postharvest fruit quality. The phenomics studies are followed by molecular studies through high-throughput genotyping using next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies and bioinformatics analysis in order to identify plant materials, molecular markers and genes useful for developing novel cultivars...

The course introduces the basics of plasma physics and controlled fusion.

Introduction to Plasma Physics and Controlled Fusion

The course is intended as the first plasma physics course however it is also suitable for senior undergraduate students and graduate students.

The primary objective of the course is to present and develop the fundamentals of plasma physics particularly highlighting high-temperature plasma physics and its applications to controlled fusion. The course begins with the historical overview of plasma physics and introduction of plasma phenomena. It includes classical physics background, single particle motion in electric and magnetic fields, Coulomb collisions and transport processes, electromagnetic theory, a fluid model of plasma, plasma confinement schemes, simple equilibrium and stability analysis, and principles of fusion machines. It also covers wave propagation in a magnetic field, kinetic description of plasmas, Vlasov model, electrostatic waves and Landau damping. The necessary mathematical apparatus (partial equations and complex analysis) will be introduced during the lectures. ... [-]

There are lots of moons in our Solar System. The Earth is the only planet with just a single moon. Some moons are bigger than ours; many are much smaller. There are even tiny moons orbiting some of the asteroids. Some have ongoing volcanic eruptions; others are dead, heavily cratered lumps. One has rivers and lakes of liquid methane. Our own Moon has resources that could help open the Solar System for future exploration. A small handful of moons have conditions below their surfaces where primitive life might exist.

Sign up to explore the rich diversity of moons, the fundamental processes that have shaped them, and the relationship between the Moon and the Earth. You will be under the guidance of experts from The Open University and elsewhere. The course is rich in high-quality text, images, video, audio and interactive elements.... [-]
