PGRP Summer Symposium 2017

For the past 15 years, BTI has held a student symposium during the last week of the Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP) summer internship program. This day-long event provides student interns an opportunity to either present their research through a presentation in our auditorium or be part of a poster session.

We will be live streaming presentations and poster sessions throughout the day on this page!
