Centre for Integrative Legume Research (CILR)
The University of Queensland
The Centre for Integrative Legume Research is an internationally-renowned research network of plant scientists conducting cutting-edge research into predominantly legumes and other plant species. We focus on legumes because of their wide role in human and environmental well-being, their special ability to enter a nitrogen-fixing symbiosis with soil bacteria, and their broad scientific database in phytochemistry, genetics, genomics and physiology. Our scientists aim to understand how plant cells communicate, grow and differentiate. Research into plant physiology, molecular and cell biology is providing fundamental insights into developing enhanced food production, agricultural sustainability, environmental quality and products for human health.
