Plant Sciences

Historically, the Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology Department has been especially strong in the areas of plant developmental biology, physiology, and systematics. In recent years, these strengths have expanded into the areas of plant molecular biology, genetics, and chemical biology. The Special Program in Plant Sciences reflects ongoing research and training interests of the faculty in the molecular genetics of flowering, the developmental biology of leaves, the physiology of hormone action, the evolution of plants, and a variety of other areas. Colleagues in the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, at the Cary Arboretum, and at the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station contribute as well to the seminars, graduate classes, workshops, and field trips offered through the Program.
