UC Davis : Plant Pathology

Davis, California - United States

The University of California was established at Berkeley in 1868, and in 1903 R. E. Smith organized a Department of Plant Pathology on this campus. Many people interested in the biological sciences are unaware of the discipline of plant pathology and the research opportunities that it has to offer. Plant pathology involves the study of interactions between plants and microorganisms at all levels of organization from genetic and biochemical to organismal and ecological. Molecular studies utilize the latest tools in genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and bioinformatics, while organismal and population level studies use modern environmental monitoring techniques and sophisticated statistical and mathematical modes of analysis. The organisms under study include fungi, bacteria, viruses and nematodes, with both fundamental and mission-oriented objectives. The Department of Plant Pathology at the University of California, Davis has a large and diverse faculty with a wide range of research expertise. Presently the department has approximately 30 graduate students. Students admitted to our graduate program for an M.S. or Ph.D. receive full financial support for the duration of their studies. To obtain additional information about the department, please feel free and pay a touch at the website.
