This week was a very interesting session as we touched upon a very important yet unpopular subject: plants! As an MCDB major, DNA, genomics, and the human body are the main interests of the students and faculty involved. For my major, we have to complete a lab requirement and I chose the class that focused on plants. Many of my peers looked at me obliviously, asking why would I take such a class for my laboratory requirement when I could have chosen something more interesting. I am one of the few in my major that likes plants and enjoys learning about them.
