Innovating Agriculture from Genome to Phenome
Faculty research emphases include plant-microbe interactions, plant signaling and organellar biology, abiotic and biotic stress responses, and genomics/proteomics. The plant research community at UNL allows for a host of productive collaborations and outstanding postdoctoral opportunities. These include plant breeding programs that incorporate modern technologies for crop improvement, an excellent ecology and evolution group that integrates an understanding of plant function to their natural environment, and an array of faculty investigating the food safety, environmental impact, and economic implications of agricultural biotechnology.Student Training
We have a strong commitment to training students in their postdoctoral studies, graduate education, and undergraduate experience. Our interdisciplinary environment and outstanding research facilities complement an excellent group of faculty with research strengths in several areas of plant biology research.
