McKenzie Shelton

Graduating May 2021 with BS in Conservation and Biodiversity from Auburn. 

The past few semesters, I’ve been working primarily on the blueberry genomics project, with the goal of identifying and cloning the ISY gene in Ornablue buds and flowers. I am very interested in research surrounding plant responses to climate change, particularly in tropical and subtropical climates. Outside of work, I love to spend my time reading, gardening, and hiking.
