Mission: The creation of CBGP had its origin in the perception of a two-fold necessity: to continue doing basic research at a competitive level, and to respond to the demands of new products, processes and services by the economic agents related to plant biology. In the last few years, knowledge on plant biology has progressed to an unprecedented pace. A major cause for this progress is the development of innovative technologies that allow efficient and global analyses of genome structure, information and expression. The new technologies are rooted in advances in the sequencing of DNA and proteins, in the use of microchips, in the automation of many laboratory procedures, and in the possibility of handling large amounts of information through bioinformatic tools. Thus, in a few years, the stage has changed from that of knowing the sequence of a relatively small number of genes, into knowing the complete genome sequence of several plant species, including model plants, such as Arabidopsis thaliana or Brachipodium distachyon, and important crops such as rice, maize, soybean, lucerne, squash or poplar, as well as of many micro-organisms involved in positive (mutualistic) or negative (pathogenic) symbioses with plants.

Evolution of the institution

The following data gives a quick reading on the scientific performance in the last years. The research ranking refers to the volume, impact and quality of the institution's research output. The innovation ranking is calculated on the number of patent applications of the institution and the citations that its research output receives from patents. Finally, the societal ranking is based on the number of pages of the institution's website and the number of backlinks and mentions from social networks.

Compared to its context

The result of the evaluation of the institution can be compared to obtain a view of the country, the region to which it belongs and the institutions of the world, placing it in their respective positions.

Ranks by Subject area

We have divided the scientific output of the institution into 19 large areas of knowledge and the following table shows only the ranks in different territorial domains achieved by the institution in each of the areas. For an institution to have a presence in an area, it is necessary that it exceed in the last year a minimum output threshold equivalent to twice the percentage that this area represents in the world. If you need scientific indicators on these areas visit Scopus and/or SciVal

Publishing profile

These are the journals used by the institution's researchers to publish their work in the last year. The size of each circle represents the value of the SJR of the publication, and its spatial position represents its subject matter.

This visualizatión allows you to identify the knowledge areas where the institution has published, recognize the prestige of the scientific journals in which the institution knowledge has been published, and identify predominant scientific communities.
