Course summary

Research overview

Our internationally acclaimed plant and crop science research is focussed on crop plants of global importance such as wheat, rice, barley, and tomato, and underutilised crops such as bambara.

We have a large multi-national team of plant and crop scientists covering a wide range of research areas, from investigating molecular mechanisms in plant cells and tissues that control important developmental processes through to investigating performance of crop plants in the field.

We study the interactions between plants, their environment and other organisms. Our goal is to harness this knowledge to improve crop quality and agronomic performance.
