The Plant Molecular Biology Center promotes and coordinates graduate study and research in plant molecular biology. Interaction among faculty members enhances the development of interdisciplinary approaches to the solution of specific research objectives. Faculty in the center utilize state-of-the-art equipment in elucidating molecular mechanisms influencing gene expression in plants. Activities of the center link the university’s biotechnology research to the needs of local and national businesses and industries. The transfer of technology from the laboratory into industrial and commercial applications constitutes the conclusion of the center’s research process. An autonomous unit, the center is affiliated with the Department of Biological Sciences and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry; graduate degrees are obtained through the affiliated instructional departments.
