Description:

Based in Ithaca, New York, the mission of the Boyce Thompson Institute (BTI) for Plant Research at Cornell University is "to advance and communicate scientific knowledge in plant biology to improve agriculture, protect the environment, and enhance human health." On the BTI website, visitors can learn about their research projects, check out their "News and Updates", and visit their interactive resources dedicated to the interactions between plants and humans. Educators shouldn't miss the "Educational Resources" area, which contains lesson plans, podcasts, videos, and the Jove experiments. These experiments allow visitors to gain first-hand exposure to doing everything from virus-induced gene silencing to how to set up aphid artificial diet experiments.
