Plant Science

Welcome to the Plant Science Research Group

The Plant Science Research Group maintains a broad interest in plant interactions within the changing environment. Much research within the Group centres on the molecular mechanisms underlying physiological and developmental adaptation to stress, and on systems and synthetic approaches to global challenges of dwindling natural resources and growing demand for energy and food security. Mike Blatt (Regius Professor of Botany) leads the Group of eight principal investigators and some 50 research staff and students housed in the new Bower Building, which includes glasshouses and growth rooms, state-of-the-art facilities for protein and metabolite biochemistry, and for electrophysiology and cell biology.
