Welcome to the Plant Cellular and Molecular Biology (PlantCMB) supergroup at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Our university has been a pioneer in the development of Arabidopsis thaliana as a model plant.
Many laboratories on campus are still using Arabidopsis thaliana as a primary model but many other model systems like the legume Medicago truncatula or the grass Brachypodium distachyon as well as crops including corn (Zea mays) and soybean (Glycine max) are used to study fundamental mechanisms of plant biology across campus.
