“I’d like to work with DNA — I hope to go into agricultural biotechnology and find ways to grow more efficient crops with better nutrients, and create plants better able to withstand freeze and drought. I see myself in research, and I’d like to work internationally.

“It’s so interesting the different ways that researchers can insert DNA into bacteria and plants to change them for the better. Who knows? I might even go into a career field that doesn’t even exist yet.”

Sara Maxwell earned a certificate in Biotechnology at El Centro College and intends to go right to work doing laboratory research.
