    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Boyce Thompson Institute as an intern (Less than a year)


    If you want to work in a place that has the resources for cutting edge research that is applicable in the real world from plant science, I would highly recommend doing an internship with the BTI community. Every week they hold interesting seminars that is directed towards recent advancements in plant science.


    I will say that the Cornell campus is quite isolated. Ithaca is a unique setting, but it's so specialized that if one doesn't like it, there's not much elsewhere to go. A car is highly recommended for getting around.

    Advice to Management

    The bioinformatics workshops, while eye opening, can use a little more organization. I had come into the internship really excited about working with bioinformatics but ended up not learning a lot about it. I still learned a lot from the lab I was placed in, but bioinformatics is a hot field right now and those skills could have been extremely marketable.
