SUMMARY

In hopes of contributing to the creation and acquisition of knowledge in the areas of microscopy and its plethora of applications in basic and applied research, it is our responsibility to share this knowledge in pursuit of improved developmental possibilities. For this reason, we present Course II: Theoretical and Practical Fundamentals and Applications in Fluorescence Microscopy, Electron Microscopy, and Image Analysis.

Fundamentals in Histochemistry and Optical Microscopy Applied to Studies in Plants

First Theoretical-Practical Course


Summary 

 

With a series of short courses, we begin our training in various theoretical and technical aspects in the morpho-anatomy and ultrastructure of plants using traditional and contemporary methods and technologies in microscopy; this also includes plant histochemistry techniques related to light microscopy. We offer it to anyone interested in the field of Botany and related disciplines. Currently, plant anatomy is a discipline in high demand in the market, as both a basic science and a tool that facilitates the solving of various problems at the taxonomic, evolutionary, ecological, and biotechnological levels.

 

Knowledge of the external and internal structure of plants is vital to understanding and explaining specific processes unique to them, and their interrelationship with the environment. Taking into account the low number of publications with a focus on morpho-anatomy in Colombia, it is necessary to carry out more structured studies of plants in order to grow our database and enrich our knowledge of the flora in our country.

 

As institutions in charge of divulging this information to the field of botany and updating the community on new techniques and state-of-the-art equipment, we see the need to train professionals who can lead these long-term investigations, and, through the precise application according to the type of study to be carried out and the type of plant material to be processed, make use of the present-day technologies that are being integrated into our country.

 

 

General Objective

Train students and professionals in practices such as histochemistry and optical microscopy in relation to plant morpho-anatomy.

 

Specific Objectives

Train participants in, the basic concept and application of handling techniques for fresh plant material preparations, and , the learning and application of different staining methodologies and basic optical microscopy techniques.

GUEST SPEAKER

Prof. Dr. Diego Demarco

Dept. Botany, IB, University of Sao Paulo

Bachelor and postgraduate degrees in Biological Sciences (2002), Master (2005) and Doctor (2008) in Plant Biology from the State University of Campinas. At the time of the cusro, the professor of the Department of the Institute of Biosciences of the University of São Paulo Botany, works in the area of Plant Anatomy, with emphasis on secretory structures and floral development and evolution.

This line of research involves ontogenetic and structural analysis in light microscopy, including polarization, fluorescence and confocal, as well as scanning and transmission electron microscopy.Foundations in Histochemistry and Optical Microscopy Applied to Studies in Plants First Theoretical-Practical Course
