Plant Biology

Studies in plant biology in the Division of Biological Sciences span scales from genes to landscapes, explore a diverse array of biological phenomena, and employ an extensive range of approaches. Areas of particular concentration include growth and development, cell biology, species conservation and biodiversity, plant-insect interactions, genetics and genomics, evolution, and ecology. Faculty and students benefit from state-of-the-art plant growth facilities and research cores on campus as well as a larger, interactive community of plant biologists through the Interdisciplinary Plant Group.

Dr. Anjali Dogra Gray

“I received a top-notch education and research experience at the University of Missouri-Columbia, which prepared me for the rigors of the work in the “real world.” My graduate studies made me more aware of what is expected of science majors when they graduate with their degrees. Now I am a professor and I feel well equipped to guide students towards careers in science. Mizzou will always have a special place in my heart.”
