Our mission is to discover, maintain, and transmit knowledge concerning basic plant biology and provide leadership in the biological sciences.

As a department, we affirm Chancellor Blank’s repeated messages that the diversity of our community is a source of strength and creativity. We are more alike than we are different and as a department, we have no tolerance for discrimination or racism. We welcome you, wherever you are from and whoever you are.
