Plant Breeding, Genetics & Genomics is the science of creating new and improved plant varieties that are higher yielding, more disease resistant, more nutritious, or simply of greater ornamental value. The Institute faculty actively engage in training of graduate students, the development of new crop varieties, and basic research on the genetics and understanding of crop traits important to agriculture and human kind. The Institute has a strong philosophy that modern plant breeding should be integrated with modern genomics and biotechnology to achieve maximum efficiency.

Our mission is to develop improved plant cultivars from agronomic and horticultural species of importance to Georgia, the U.S., and worldwide. Institute faculty train graduate students in modern plant breeding methods and conduct basic research on the genetics of crop traits important to agriculture and human kind.
