The Plant Center @ UGA
Welcome to the Plant Center
Plants are the key to a healthy planet and the cornerstone upon which all agriculture depends. Cutting-edge research in plant molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, and genomics is considered vital to safe-guard the environment while sustainably meeting the food, feed, fiber, and fuel needs of an ever-increasing population. The UGA Plant Center promotes interaction amongst plant geneticists, plant molecular biologists and plant biochemists, helps support agriculture in Georgia and beyond, and fosters a productive learning environment for students and scientists.
