Organization profile

The SBC facilitates research that solves global problems. Research topics collectively serve to build scientific understanding of plants and the organisms with which they interact and to translate that knowledge into improved crops, sustainable pest and disease management strategies, and policies that protect the ecosystem and further human wellbeing. SBC researchers partner with scientists and other entities at the University of Minnesota and other US and international institutes and organizations to form a network prepared to respond to threats to global food security and ecosystem health.
