Happy Thanksgiving from the Plant Biology Department! Ever wondered how many plant species grace your dinner table? While turkey often steals the spotlight, we believe it's time to shine the light on the real stars—the plants!

Dr. Paola Barriga, Undergraduate Teaching Specialist in the Department of Plant Biology, was selected as 2023 faculty fellow  by the Biological Collections in Ecology and Evolution Network (BCEENETT).

A project to decode the genome of aspen trees has revealed a new wrinkle in how chromosomes are constructed—and it may have larger evolutionary implications, according to researchers in the Tsai lab at the University of Georgia. 

Undergraduate students from two Department of Plant Biology lab courses have recently co-authored a scientific paper with Dr. Wolfgang Lukowitz, an associate professor of plant biology.

We are pleased to announce the establishment of the Russell Malmberg Memorial Scholarship in Plant Biology. This scholarship fund, which will provide support to students pursuing an undergraduate degree in Plant Biology, stands as a testament to Dr.
