Looking for Plant Biology? As of July 1, the Plant Biology Dept. became the Plant and Microbial Biology Dept. and incorporated five faculty from Microbiology and three from Genetics. Graduate and undergraduate degree programs in plant biology and microbiology have not changed, and information about both can be found under the "Academics" tab. The change in faculty distribution is a result of the realignment between CALS and the new College of Sciences.
