Plant Biotechnology

Dr. Steve Herbert is an Associate Professor of Plant Sciences working in the areas of photosynthesis research and plant biotechnology. Photosynthesis is the ultimate source of nearly all the food and carbon-based materials used by humans. Dr. Herbert’s fundamental research aims to understand the mechanisms by which plants, algae, and photosynthetic bacteria protect their photosynthetic systems from oxygen radicals and excessive sunlight. Dr. Herbert’s applied research uses genetic modification to improve algae for more efficient production of foods, materials, and renewable biofuels.
