Plant products are of great importance as food, feed, building materials, fibres and pharmaceutical drugs. This means that the knowledge of how plants function, their genetics and interaction with the environment is necessary for sustainable crop production and by extension for sustainable development. The programme is intended for national as well as international students who want to deepen their knowledge in plant biology in one of the four elective specialisations. The programme is taught entirely in English. The teaching on this programme is strongly geared towards preparing students for research, and all specialisations on the programme have links to strong research environments.
