The overall goal of this NRT program is to train scientists with an interdisciplinary background and conceptual framework to synthesize two divergent fields - plant science and computational/data science - and to integrate knowledge at multiple levels of biological organization. At the end of the program the trainees should be competent in the 5 areas. Detail list of areas is found here.


Our program has 5 components. All components will be open to non-trainees interested in computational plant science. Details about the components is found here.
