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.

“I owe MU for my formation as a scientist. I developed a passion for studying plant genomes while working in Chris Pires’ lab. Today, I’m implementing all the knowledge and experience I have acquired during my years at MU to help to do great science in my home country of Colombia. I will be forever grateful to all the professors and peers I met and interacted with in the Division of Biological Sciences during my years at MU. ”
