Plant Genetics at MSU

Rapid changes in the biotechnology industry have occurred as a result of molecular, genetic and cell biological techniques. Students working in the field of biotechnology emphasize both molecular and cellular biological concepts and associated techniques to address problems facing plant, animal or microbial production systems. A strong foundation is developed through coursework in chemistry, physics, biology, microbiology, genetics, and allied sciences during the first two years of the program (College of Agriculture).

The Department conducts research programs in: cereal quality; cropping systems/specialty crops; molecular and conventional approaches to plant improvement. Faculty have expertise in molecular genetics, plant breeding and genetics, cereal quality, cytogenetics, biochemistry, plant physiology and agronomy.
