The Department of Plant Sciences carries out research into global food security, synthetic biology and biotechnology, and climate science and ecosystem conservation.

Recent discoveries include identifying new components of the molecular clock in plants that influences flowering and seed size and identifying modifications made by viruses to plant metabolism. These changes influence the feeding behaviour of insects and have implications for the spread of viruses and crop pollination.
