Plant Genomics at Missouri
The University of Missouri-Columbia (MU) is a nationally recognized 
center for plant genetics research and has recently been awarded 
twelve grants from the National Science Foundation to fund research 
in plant genomics.  Faculty in Biological Sciences, Biochemistry, 
Plant Sciences, and USDA/ARS are eager to provide training 
opportunities for undergraduates who wish to participate in 
collaborative research.

Research Mentors
Seventeen MU faculty will serve as potential mentors for PGI @ MU 
interns. Students
will be matched with faculty based on preferences indicated in the application
form and on the student's research interests as described in their personal
statement.
