Stanford, CA—How much of the ability of a coral reef to withstand stressful conditions is influenced by the type of algae that the corals hosts?
Carnegie's Department of Plant Biology is located on the Stanford University campus. Scientists here use several complementary approaches (genomic, proteomic, computational, and cell biological approaches) to understand the fundamental processes of cell signaling, gene regulation, metabolic networks, cell morphogenesis, development, photosynthesis and responses to the environment. The unique combination of broad scientific interests and technical expertise creates an excellent environment for research and training. Our goal is to generate fundamental knowledge that will help provide solutions to the challenges of food security and the changing environment for current and future generations.
