Each of our 11 research groups makes vital contributions to new discoveries. You’ll be able to choose from a broad range of topics, applying multidisciplinary approaches – from computational biology to molecular genetics and cell biology – and to subjects ranging from plant growth, development and evolution to plant pathogen interactions and biotechnology.

We offer a wide range of research interests, including plant biotechnology, developmental biology; speciation and natural variation (making use of our strong connections with the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh); circadian clocks and photobiology; bio-imaging; biochemistry and cell biology; and molecular plant pathology.
