Bailey Greene is a senior from Asheboro, NC, majoring in biology with minors in math and chemistry. She has been working with Dr. Dane Fisher in the Milton Rose Program. During her freshman year, she worked on agrobacterium transformations of tobacco plants and on Coleus Cv. mutations using UV light. As a sophomore, she worked on a tomato breeding project using heirloom and specially bred tomato varieties. During her junior year, Bailey worked on a project to transform soybeans using agrobacterium, and as a senior, Bailey began work on a project to establish DNA fingerprints for different tomato varieties that could eventually be used to determine if true hybrids have been made when doing crosses.
