Crystal decided plant development was her thing while taking Prof. Bob Fischer's plant genetics class.  Now a huge fan of MADS box genes and their role in developmental evolution, Crystal is working with Miranda and Kelsie to develop VIGS in gingers and to study the role of various MADS box genes in floral development.  She is a master at RNA extraction and a true fan of the plant kingdom.  Plus she's from Delaware, which makes two Delawareans in the lab!
