The IPG is a community of University of Missouri (MU) faculty, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and professionals pursuing transformative ideas in the field of plant biology. The group seeks to encourage cooperation between scientists engaged in plant molecular biology, physiology, biochemistry, genetics, biotechnology, evolution, ecology and…

Maintaining Strong Bonds

CAFNR collaborators play key roles in success of 30-year partnership between UM System, University of Western Cape

Some memoranda of understanding (MOUs) mean more than others. Some are essentially pieces of paper tying two academic institutions together from different countries for five years.

Just ask the collective administrators, faculty and students from the four University of Missouri System universities and the University of…

Growing Synergy Between the Lab and Field

Multidisciplinary MU team led by IPG conducts unprecedented research on corn's nodal roots

When it came to studying the physiology and function of nodal roots of corn, Bob Sharp knew it was going to take an army. Fortunately, it did not take him very long to assemble an interdisciplinary team — six of whom are members of MU’s Interdisciplinary Plant Group (IPG) — that was up to the task of tackling a topic that has been relatively…

IPG in the Spotlight
