Plant Gene Expression Center (PGEC) conducts fundamental research in
plant molecular biology. The Principal Investigators are elucidating
the signal transduction pathways responsible for the perception of
environmental and cellular cues. Research programs include disease resistance,
light perception, the circadian clock, vegetative growth, and reproduction.
Essential genes and the networks within which
they operate are elucidated using molecular, genetic and biochemical
The Plant Gene Expression Center is a unique collaboration of the Agricultural Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Plant & Microbial Biology Department of the University of California. PGEC research leaders are members of the PMB Department and research opportunities are available in our laboratories for graduate and undergraduate students.
