Plant and Crop Sciences

The strategy of plant scientists at Nottingham is to carry out research on fundamental processes regulating plant growth, development and quality, and to study the interactions between plants, their environment, and other organisms; the goal is to harness this knowledge to improve crop quality and agronomic performance; the work extends from studies at the molecular and biochemical level, to the physiological analysis of whole plants and the performance of crop communities; central to the research is the use of the model plant arabidopsis to gain new insights into molecular basis of crop plant processes.
