The IPG draws its faculty from different departments and schools/colleges at MU, including Biochemistry, Agronomy, Forestry, Plant Pathology, the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Sciences, the College of Arts and Science, and the School of Medicine. The IPG has also received funding through MU's Food for the 21st Century.
