Plant physiology studies vital processes in plant organisms deals with intrinsic relationships within the plant body as well as interactions with the environment. At present, the traditional name „physiology“ de facto covers complex studies of plant biology including genetic, biochemical and ecological problems. It aims to elucidate coherence between structure and function at the level of the whole organism, organs, tissues, and cells. It makes use of the methods of biochemistry, molecular and cell biology, anatomy, and ecology. Plant physiology contributes to the knowledge of general biology of living organisms including biomedical aspects.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The goal of the Plant Science Program is to develop a thorough understanding of plant growth and function under challenging environmental conditions, such as those found in Saudi Arabia. The fundamental biology of plants is studied at a range of levels (e.g. genomic, proteomic, metabolomics), and the interactions of plants with their environment, both abiotic (heat, salt, and drought) and biotic (pathogens and symbionts) are investigated. Application of this knowledge will allow development of plants with enhanced tolerance to environmental stresses and help to establish sustainable agriculture systems in arid regions of the world.
