Collaboration is the name of the game in the Department of Plant and Microbial Biology.
We focus on the biology of plants and of microorganisms and partner with the College of Sciences to support graduate and undergraduate programs in Biological Sciences, Microbiology and Genetics. Our department also offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in Plant Biology and administers the inter-college Microbiology graduate major. We foster strong ties with a number of other departments across the college to give our students the best possible education.
Our department is internationally-recognized, with faculty who have won numerous awards for teaching and scholarly excellence. And our graduates go on to distinguish themselves in careers in academia, government, industry, and environmental and public service organizations. We are committed to student success, and it shows.
