Plant Talk

In the Lab with Tynisha Smalls

Posted in Plant Science , Videos on March 23, 2021, by Matt Newman

From studying the genomes of plants in the lab to learning how plants can support us medicinally and nutritionally, NYBG’s experts have taken many paths to careers in botanical science.

Join Arvolyn Hill, Coordinator of Family Programs, as she interviews Genomics Laboratory Manager Tynisha Smalls, who discusses her own road to working in the lab here at the Garden. Then, stick around for a simple, hands-on strawberry DNA experiment—inspired by Tynisha’s research—that you can do at home.
