Summer Interns Guest Curate BTI Twitter Account: Meet Hailey Edmondson
This week on BTI’s Twitter account, we have a guest curator. Please welcome Hailey Edmondson! She is a member of the 2016 Plant Genome Research Program cohort. This summer we are giving these young scientists an opportunity to communicate their experience through social media. We are looking forward to hearing about their projects in the lab, and their impressions of the internship.
Follow along on @BTIscience and #BTIsummer. Feel free to ask our scientists questions and help share their tweets.

If you could be any scientist, dead or alive, who would you be?
I’d have to say Norman Borlaug—the famed wheat breeder and sometimes called the “Father of the Green Revolution.” He had a very tangible impact on global agriculture and food security, which I admire.
