All teaching is based on the latest scientific knowledge. Research in Plant Biology is advancing on many fronts. It operates from the molecular and cellular levels to the ecosystem level, and covers both wild and cultivated plants. The main focus areas are:

  • regulation of plant development and differentiation of tissues and organs
  • crop yield and breeding of cultivated plants
  • stress responses
  • population ecology of fungal plant diseases
  • evolution, ecology, genetics, genomics and biotechnology of plants and fungi

Studying Plant Biology will involve you in fascinating research projects looking for solutions to many current problems.
