BTI is proud to welcome its 15th class of undergraduate interns this month. The 2016 cohort joins the more than 400 students since 2001 who have spent a summer learning advanced techniques in molecular biology, genomics and bioinformatics at BTI, while making life sciences discoveries and exploring new careers in research. The students come from diverse backgrounds in the U.S. and abroad, and will spend 10 weeks in research labs at BTI, Cornell and the USDA. Students will attend research seminars, classes in bioinformatics techniques and career opportunity talks.

BTI’s Director of Education and Outreach Tiffany Fleming, Professor Georg Jander and Jian Hua, a faculty member in the Cornell School of Integrative Plant Sciences, are pleased to welcome the following students to BTI’s 2016 summer internship program.
