Answer the question you selected for profile question 1 here (300 words):
There is no typical day for me! I can spend weeks at a time in the greenhouses, planting big experiments (>1000 plants!) and collecting data on all those plants. I can spend my day in the lab, extracting DNA from different plants and sequencing specific genes in order to understand how plant species are related to one another. I can spend my day in the field, hiking around and looking for populations of plants. When I find these populations I measure features of the environment and collect seeds and soils to use in experiments. Or I can spend my days on the computer, crunching numbers and writing up my conclusions.
