Signaling Mechanisms in Plants: Introduction

This guide is a gateway to research resources that support the Signaling Mechanisms in Plants research cluster at the University of North Texas.

UNT's Signaling Mechanisms in Plants Research Cluster

The Research Clusters at the University of North Texas bring together faculty from a wide range of disciplines to address complex issues through interdisciplinary collaborations and innovation. 

The Signaling Mechanisms in Plants research cluster draws upon cell biology, biochemistry, genetics, metabolomics and informatics to study how plants use cellular communication via a complex network of molecular signals in their growth, development and defense responses to stress. Deeper understanding of these methods of communication should yield solutions to challenges in energy, agriculture, nutrition and medicine.
