The mission of the Plant Center is to enhance the tradition of outstanding research in plant science at the University of Georgia.  It achieves its purpose by fostering and supporting interactions among those members of the UGA research community who share common interests in:

  • The organization, evolution and function of plant genomes,
  • The growth, development and biotic/abiotic interactions of plants, and
  • The improvement and production of plants for agricultural or industrial uses.
