The John Innes Centre is an independent, international centre of excellence in plant science and microbiology.
Our mission and research
We receive funding from the UK Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) for four research areas that directly address BBSRC strategic objectives in food security, human health and industrial biotechnology.
Our mission is to generate knowledge of plants and microbes through innovative research, to apply our knowledge of nature’s diversity to benefit agriculture, the environment, human health and well-being, to train scientists for the future and to engage with policy makers and the public
The research we do makes use of a wide range of disciplines in biological and chemical sciences, including microbiology, cell biology, biochemistry, chemistry, genetics, molecular biology, computational and mathematical biology.
Our teams include biologists, chemists, computational modellers, physicists, mathematicians and a wide range of researchers, all working together to tackle big challenges and to make new discoveries which underpin scientific knowledge.
