Editor's note
The following abstract describes a publication that is only available for purchase. A link to ordering information is on this page.

Scientific research has expanded from narrowly defined and segregated areas into the broader arena of interdisciplinary study. This stimulates unique problem-solving approaches. MU's multidisciplinary programs greatly enhance the environment for research and teaching and are leading the way to MU's future as a research university that serves the needs of the state in higher education. This manual discusses the molecular biology program's four research areas, the Food for the 21st Century program, biotechnology faculty profiles, faculty research interests, departmental faculty listing, and services and facilities.
