1 PhD Programs in Plant Sciences in Athens, USA 2023

Overview

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

An MSc in Plant Sciences will introduce you to molecular and systems biology of plants, molecular mechanisms of plant hormone action and responses to abiotic stress. An MSc in Plant Sciences also covers root and shoot architecture, plant nutrition, flowering, systemic signalling, plant secondary metabolism, medicinal plants etc.
