Cum laude for Kelly!

Kelly Breeds, pictured here with Prof. Louise Warnich, dean of the Faculty of Science, obtained her MSc degree in Genetics cum laude through the University of Stellenbosch in December 2017.

In 2013 Kelly was the holder of the Hofmeyr-van Schaik medal for the best fourth-year Genetics student and continued to build on this achievement during her master’s studies.

Through her project, A targeted investigation of Diuraphis noxia (Hemiptera: Aphididae) methylation under the supervision of Prof. Anna-Maria BothaOberholster, she learned valuable laboratory and data handling skills that she applies at CenGen.

Congratulations to Kelly on achieving this milestone!
