Biology: Plant Sciences and Natural Products
The Master specialisation Plant Sciences and Natural Products is a specialisation of the Biology Master and offers a research-oriented education in plant sciences with a strong focus on the generation of fundamental scientific knowledge that can lead to the improvement of crop quality and yield. Important aspects of plant development and the interaction of plants with the environment can be studied at different often integrated levels ranging from the molecular, genetic and cellular levels to organismal and population levels. It is also possible to study the production of plant natural products that are important for the food or pharmaceutical industries.
A major part of the master training is actively taking part in a running research project within the Plant Sciences and Natural Products research area at the Institute of Biology, the Faculty of Science, Naturalis Biodiversity Center or Institute of Environmental Sciences There are also possibilities for external projects at other plant institutes in the Netherlands or abroad.
Coordinator: Dr. R. Offringa
