Plant Sciences Seminars

Hear from cutting-edge scientists at UC Davis and around the world who are breaking new ground in plant science! Each Wednesday, we present a short program, you can ask questions, and at the end, interact directly with the presenter. Please be COVID-safe during our in-person events at 12:10 p.m. each Wednesday in PES 3001 – and catch the beautiful view from the balcony!
