BOTANY AT UT, AUSTIN: The Botany Department at the University of Texas at 
Austin is currently composed of 18 faculty that have expertise in a wide range 
of areas, from systematic and evolutionary biology to cellular regulation and 
gene expression. The Department is particularly active in graduate training 
with more than 60 students currently pursuing Ph.D. degrees. Interaction among 
faculty and students in different areas is encouraged, as is interaction with 
faculty in other departments.

Further development of the life sciences at UT-Austin is currently a high
