Plants get stressed too. We're looking at thousands of genes to understand how they manage it. Plants get stressed too. We're looking at thousands of genes to understand how they manage it.

MSU scientists have developed a new gene discovery method that is helping them to understand how plants recover from stressful situations in their environments.

How do algae survive excess oxygen? Recent discovery gives clues to boost biofuel production How do algae survive excess oxygen? Recent discovery gives clues to boost biofuel production

A new study from the MSU-DOE Plant Research Laboratory (PRL) shows how some algae can protect themselves when the oxygen they produce impairs their photosynthetic activity. The discovery also answers a long-standing question about how algae survive when CO2 levels are low.

New limitations to photosynthesis discovered by observing plants in the real world New limitations to photosynthesis discovered by observing plants in the real world

Using innovative methodologies that combine biology and statistics, researchers from the Kramer lab at the MSU-DOE Plant Research Laboratory (PRL) observe the ways plants respond to their natural environments.
