Hi I'm Mishi! I am a graduating senior at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL where I am studying Molecular Biology. My senior thesis is based on developing a new variety of cantaloupe with improved Fusarium wilt resistance and also constructing molecular markers to determine resistance or susceptibility to Fusarium. Overall, my interest in plant science lies in plant breeding and pathology, with an emphasis on crop improvement. Following graduation, I hope to attend graduate school for plant breeding.
