BTI Welcomes New Crop of Summer Interns

BTI invited faculty and staff to meet the 2015 summer interns in a welcome ceremony June 1 at 3:45 p.m. in the atrium. Director of Education and Outreach Tiffany Fleming introduced the 20 undergraduates who are joining BTI for the summer.

The students will undertake 10 weeks of intensive laboratory research, faculty seminars, bioinformatics training, talks and poster presentations. Each student is involved in the Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP), the Bioinformatics Program or the Science Education Program. Seven high school students will begin a six-week internship program on June 29.
