Course content

We study the interactions between plants, their environment and other organisms to improve crop quality and agronomic performance.

Research areas

We undertake extensive fundamental research on mechanisms controlling plant growth and development using the model plants including Arabidopsis.

Research using model plants provides insights into gene networks that govern important agronomic traits such as seed germination, plant growth and morphology, plant response environmental stresses, seed filling and fruit ripening.

Our research in model plants forms part of a pipeline for translation of plant characteristics into crops.
