The Plant Biology Graduate Program (PB Program) provides graduate and undergraduate training and fosters faculty research and collaboration in all aspects of the biology of plants. Unlike traditional departmental graduate programs, PB allows students to select their advisors from five departments on campus or from faculty members from the Five Colleges. The diverse areas of focus in cell biology and physiology, biochemistry and metabolism, genetics and evolution, and environmental, ecological and intergrative biology permit PB students and faculty to work on any level of biological organization from molecules to landscapes, and to choose basic or applied topics. The common interest of PB members in plants is a bridge for work across disciplines.
