We provide data-driven solutions to improve plant health, performance and resilience through unparalleled insights into plant biology.
Over the last 25 years we have become a world-leading institute for plant research. Our 16 research groups work in three overlapping areas of plant and fungal biology and tackle the global challenges of:
- food security
- climate change
- green technology
Our strength lies in the depth and diversity of plant topics we cover. We have a strong track record in ground-breaking discoveries that have transformed our understanding of how plants grow and interact with their environment.
Work with Us
Our multi-million pound, state-of-the-art facilities enable research from the molecular to whole-plant scales. Partnerships with the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE), partner institutions within Edinburgh Plant Science and industry extends our reach to crops and ecosystems - allowing our research to move from greenhouses to global solutions in a rapidly changing world.
