Advisor Comments (Dilip R. Panthee):

Ms. Myers joined my Tomato Breeding program in the Fall of 2018. Her research project was in RNA-seq analysis with respect to bacterial wilt infection in tomato. Her minor was in Statistics. She performed extremely well in her course work as well as a research project. I wish her very good luck for her future career!
