Plant Molecular Biology
Plant molecular biology is a peculiar field of science for investigating plant cells and changing them to increase the usefulness of plants in everyday life. Career areas include agriculture, food science, health care, environmental science and teaching. Plant molecular biology explores the role of certain cells, their function in plant life and methods to alter those cells to greater effect. Some of the most common traits studied are reactions to various stresses, resistance to common disease and minerals contained within the plant.
