A centre of excellence for internationally acclaimed researchers, accommodates one of the largest communities of plant and crop scientists in the UK. Research utilizes genomic and epigenomic-level studies in crop and model species to provide novel understanding of biological mechanisms underpinning plant developmental processes, focussing on Global Food Security. Our work encompasses molecular mechanisms in plant cells and tissues through to investigating performance of field crops. Studies of model systems provide insights into gene networks that govern important crop traits. Our genetic resources permit genomic and epigenomic-level studies providing new insights into important crop traits: resource capture, resistance to biotic and abiotic stress, male sterility and post-harvest shelf-life and quality.
