Plants provide medicinal compounds, shelter, fuel, food and oxygen and support the existence of life on Earth. Our goal is to provide students with high quality they acquire the biological literacy and critical thinking skills necessary for successful careers in education, industry and government or to continue their education in graduate and professional schools.
Our mission is to discover, maintain and transmit knowledge concerning basic plant biology and provide leadership in the biological sciences.

The study of plant is of vital importance; they are the source of the food we eat, the oxygen we breathe, most of the medicines we use and are core to the understanding of the process of global climate change. Dealing with the threats from global climate change will be one of the biggest challenges of this century. Human manipulation of plants in the future will need to provide food and energy for an expanding human population whilst conserving the biodiversity of living organisms and integrity of habits.
