Dr Weber & Colette Berg had a fantastic time catching up with collaborators and talking about science at the Botanical Society of America Meetings. The cooler weather in Rochester, MN was a nice break from the heat waves in southern Missouri.
Colette presented her research on advancing flowering time in T. perfoliata. We received lots of great feedback, and we are excited to submit that paper this fall.
“I wanted to work with other students who have the same interests in plants and create something that would last a long time at the University,” Albers said. “In my botany classes, I learned a lot about the science of plants on a cellular level, but in a greenhouse, you focus on identifying the plants and taking care of them.”
