Cellular and Developmental Biological Research

The broad area of molecular, cell and developmental biology is a rapidly growing area that has deeply impacted modern biological approaches. This area has developed an array of new and innovative molecular tools and approaches which has changed virtually all other areas of biology. Molecular, cell and developmental biology are widely recognized as vitally important unifying areas of biology and are ever expanding in importance and impact. We are fortunate to have an outstanding community of researchers in this area covering the range from molecular biotechnology, fungal and plant genetics, plant biochemical and developmental biology through to animal developmental biology. We have excellent equipment and core facilities including microscopy and imaging as well as molecular and analytical facilities to support research in this area. In terms of equipment, infrastructure and expertise researchers in this area have strong links with a number of researchers who work in the biodiversity and physiological areas described below. This is particularly applicable to researchers with interests in molecular evolutionary biology.

These people are involved in this research area:
