About the Facility
ABOUT THE LAB
The Plant Biology Microscopy Facility focuses on ultrastructural studies of plants, fungi and single-cell protists. We specialize in cryo-techniques and immunocytochemistry to study plant and fungal growth, development and nuclear division, host-pathogen interactions in fungal diseases of plants, and plant cell wall characterization. We welcome researchers at the University of Georgia, their students, post-docs and technicians plus researchers from other universities and industry.
