CALS Student Perspectives | David Higgins | Fellowship-winner focuses on flower development | Research from the NC Agricultural Research Service |

CALS grad, David Higgins, earned his BA in genetics & plant biology, working with geneticist, Dr. Bob Franks. His focus is flowers: How can we make plants grow better?  What genes participate in flower development? How do plants make flowers, anyway? The honors student says his undergrad research experience showed him the skills he needs to achieve his career goal; and he enters a PhD program in Plant Biology in the fall.
