Graduate School Plant Sciences

In the Graduate School of Plant Sciences the research groups are integrated into national and international research programs. The range of topics covered reflects the diversity of the research groups present at the DCPS and includes studies of how plants perceive biotic and abiotic stimuli, transmission of information within plants through hormones and other signal molecules, and how that information is translated in physiological reactions, genetic control of plant development, how plants interact with other organisms, plant relationships, and the evolution of traits and new plant species.

The graduate school encompasses the disciplines of molecular biology and genetics, developmental and cell biology, biochemistry of plants and plant physiology, ecology of plants and animals, functional biodiversity and molecular ecology, systematic botany and plant geography, bioinformatics.
