Molecular Plant and Microbial Systems
The Molecular Plant and Microbial Systems theme is a vibrant and established research theme within the Department of Life Sciences, at Imperial College London.
Molecular Plant and Microbial Systems brings together independent groups sharing interests in the cellular and molecular biology of plants and microorganisms. Current research spans a wide spectrum of topics, in pursuit of both fundamental and applied science. We cover whole organism physiology, gene control, cellular signalling and development systems, the biochemistry and biophysics of photosynthesis, and use a range of modern molecular and informatics methodologies to research these areas. Our work aligns to current challenges in food security and bioenergy.
