About Us

The Plant Sciences Institute is dedicated to enhancing Iowa State University's international prominence in the plant sciences.

Our research focus is to understand the effects of genotype and environment on phenotypes (traits) sufficiently well that we will be able to predict phenotype of a given genotype in a given environment (i.e., predictive phenomics)
