Who are we?

Find out more about who we are, how we operate and how everything works.

here for science

The grains website was created to help everyone. To inspire undergraduates, to provide a hub for learning material and to bring together people in the wide plant science community. We want to increase the volume and ranges of scientific communication, both to the public and to the scientific community. It’s a tricky goal, and that’s why we need YOU! We need you to help push plant science and enable a greater outreach. One, to encourage people to join the research effort, which is becoming ever more critical due to the growing food crisis and escalating global climate change. Second, to help improve the awareness of plant science research and all its outcomes.
