Botany - Structured

Course Overview
All PhD students in the College of Science will enrol in a Structured PhD: www.nuigalway.ie/science/rgroups.html

Short summary of the research area:
Plants are the ultimate solar-powered biological systems selected by evolution. Botany and Plant Science conduct fundamental and applied research on plants at all levels, including ecosystems, communities, species, individuals, tissues, cells and molecules (e.g., genetics, biochemistry). We investigate many types of plants including algae (e.g., seaweeds, diatoms), mosses, ferns, gymnosperms and flowering (seed) plants, including wild plants, model genetic organisms (e.g., Arabidopsis) and cultivated plants (e.g., crops, forestry). Plant research is the key biosciences topic for future sustainable development, particularly in developing countries.
