Course Summary

Research profile

With world-class facilities and lively collaborations, our Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences provides you with the ideal environment in which to pursue postgraduate research.

We’re one of the most active university departments for plant sciences in the UK, hosting one of the country’s few plant-based research and teaching institutes.

Each of our 11 research groups makes vital contributions to new discoveries. You’ll be able to choose from a broad range of topics, applying multidisciplinary approaches – from computational biology to molecular genetics and cell biology – and to subjects ranging from plant growth, development and evolution to plant pathogen interactions and biotechnology.

Broad scope

We offer a wide range of research interests, including plant biotechnology, developmental biology; speciation and natural variation (making use of our strong connections with the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh); circadian clocks and photobiology; bio-imaging; biochemistry and cell biology; and molecular plant pathology.
