Amaranthus tricolor

Focus on plant metabolism, growth, and evolution

Faculty address diverse areas of plant biology. Their work investigates molecular regulation of the photosynthetic pathway in C4 plants, biosynthetic pathways of plant products that are important as pharmaceutics, growth in difficult or contaminated environments, evolutionary biology by combining state-of-the-art genomics with molecular analyses to understand plant origins and diversification.

Faculty in the Plant Science Group include Drs. Albert, Berry, Bisson, Lindquist, and Wang.
