Plant Sciences

Our Biology Department is a centre of excellence in Plant Sciences. Many of the major advances in plant biology were developed or enhanced by the research of Queen's plant biologists past and present. The current research group employs leading-edge approaches to answer some of the most pressing questions in plant biology. These approaches range from new physiological techniques to mutant analysis to gene cloning to the genetic engineering of plants. Some of the research has also been developed into powerful technologies that now form the foundations of plant biotechnology companies.
