About Institute of Plant Biology, National Taiwan University
When College of Life Science, National Taiwan University was established in 2003, the Department of Botany and Department of Zoology were merged as the Department of Life Science. At the same time the Graduate Institute of Plant Biology (IPB) was established, providing Master and Ph.D. programs for prospective graduate students.
IPB offer diversified courses such as molecular biology, plant stress biology, genetics, cell biology, transgenic techniques, and plant-microbe interaction. Faculty members work in different aspects of plant biology, such as plant physiology, stress physiology, signal transduction, microbiology, macromolecule structure, and biotechnology. Research in the IPB can be divided into the following topics:
Plant stress biology (abiotic and biotic)
Regulation of growth and development
Macromolecule structure and function
