Support CEBCEB


Ways to Contribute

Genomics has given plant scientists the tools to begin developing a comprehensive understanding of how plants function as whole organisms: how they adapt to the environment, fight infection, ward off competition from other plants, and manipulate the behavior of animals such as feeding insects. Our goal is to apply the knowledge of how plants respond to their dynamic environment toward manipulation of crop plants safely and efficiently for better and more sustainable production.

Descriptions of endowments and funds established for CEPCEB are below. We are extremely grateful to all our benefactors who have so generously supported our mission and endeavors. These funds are instrumental in preparing a new generation of scientists for this exciting new era in the biological sciences.
