Plant Biology for the Sustainable Bioeconomy
The Plant Biology for the Sustainable Bio economy (PBSB) group is focused on research around the areas of plant production, biomass and sustainability.
The group undertakes internationally recognised plant biology and breeding relevant to biomass production by:
- Collecting and characterising relevant germplasm in the centre's of diversity.
- Breeding high yielding hybrids with drought, cold, heavy metal resilience to allow plants to grown on marginal lands in current and future climates.
- Aims to understand and manipulate flowering and senescence for breeding better hybrids.
