Admission Requirements

In addition to meeting general BBS requirements, applicants to the Plant Molecular Biology Track must 1) have a strong foundation in basic sciences, such as biology, chemistry, physics, computer science, or mathematics, 2) be committed to pursuing research in plant sciences for their PhD, and 3) be interested in cross-disciplinary approaches to plant biology. We encourage applications from international candidates as well as domestic candidates. The GRE Subject Test is not required but can be used as support in application materials. We strongly encourage all applicants to contact a primary faculty member of the Plant Molecular Biology Track prior to applying. When applying please list the primary faculty that you have contacted in the appropriate section of the application.
