1.Physiology

Accredited to award master’s and doctoral degrees. There are now 3 professors (Two of them are doctoral tutors) and 8 associate professors. All of the young master tutors have doctorates and the experience which they gained when they studied abroad or worked abroad. Our main research topics are “Regulation of Plant Growth and Development”; “Physiological Responses of Plants to Anti-environment”; “Environmental Physiology”;” Ecophysiology”; “Nutritional Physiology”; “Crop Physiology”; “Plant Photosynthesis and Metabolism”; “Cell and Tissue Culture Technology and Application“ and so on. Instruments have been fully linked to modern molecular biotechnology and modern genetic breeding techniques. Now there are plans from “National 863 Project”,” National Science Foundation”, “Ministry of Education of the award for young teachers”, and there are more than 15 subjects from Hubei province and Wuhan city. We award graduate students Master of Science after they graduate. These graduates are well competent to the various positions including administration, teaching and research in colleges and universities, research institutes, government bodies and biological industry enterprises at home and abroad. Eighty percent of the master were admitted to the doctoral after graduation.
