Kelsi Scott

Kelsi Scott earned her B. S. in Biology at Illinois State University and pursued her M. S. with Dr. Barbara Crandall- Stotler in the Department of Plant Biology. As part of her thesis research, she was generating RAPD data for 25 sibling clones of Fossombronia foveolata collected from a population in Jackson Hollow, Pope county, Illinois. One hundred random primers were being used to determine if the population was selfing or out-crossing. This research was supported by PEET grant (DEB-9521883) from the National Science Foundation.

In addition to botanical studies, Kelsi has a deep love for music and takes pleasure in attending concerts and traveling.
