Center for Plant Cell Biology



The revolution in 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. As scientists, CEPCEB researchers are driven to understand this amazingly diverse group of living organisms that underpins all life on Earth. 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. It is our goal that these funds will be instrumental in preparing a new generation of scientists for this exciting new era in the biological sciences.
