Seminars & Events

The PRL sponsors two weekly seminars. On Mondays, a visiting scientist discusses research on a timely molecular plant sciences topic. While at the PRL, the visiting scientists also visit the PRL laboratories to speak with the students, postdocs, and faculty in an informal setting. 

The Tuesday Noon Seminars feature a student or postdoc in the plant sciences presenting a seminar on his/her research project.

We also host social and student-driven events and seminar talks, beyond our regular series.

The PRL's affiliated departments host seminar series of interest to plant scientists.
