Describe a favorite experience while attending graduate school at MU.
So far, my favorite experience at MU has been collecting all of the data required to carry out my summer's research. My next big task is to analyze the copious amounts of data I have collected! I also enjoyed the DPS banquet in April and Staff OIympics.
Understanding the fundamental concepts of plant breeding, genetics, and genomics is essential to providing solutions to the wide array of problems in food, fiber and energy production that are facing the growing world population. In the Plant Breeding, Genetics, and Genomics graduate program area, students receive training in a wide range of courses and research programs in plant physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics, plant-microbe interactions, breeding and biotechnology. We encourage interdisciplinary training that provides a comprehensive preparation for careers in research and education in plant biology, genetics and related areas.
