Advancing Scientific Knowledge in Plant Biology

Cornell Collaboration

Boyce Thompson Institute’s (BTI’s) relationship with Cornell was born from a mutual interest in developing, among other things, a base of knowledge relating to problems in resource production and management. While BTI maintains an identity as an independent nonprofit organization with its own mission, values, and endowment, its location on the Cornell University campus facilitates a collaborative association with Cornell’s New York State College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS). A number of BTI research scientists are adjunct, assistant, associate, and senior professors at Cornell in areas such as plant pathology, plant biology, entomology, plant breeding and genetics, molecular biology and genetics, chemistry, and chemical biology. Additionally, many of the undergraduate and all of the graduate students working in BTI laboratories are enrolled in degree programs at Cornell.
