TANIA CHANCELLOR

PhD Student

Biointeractions and Crop Protection

BIOGRAPHY

Tania is a PhD student in the Biointeractions and Crop Protection department at Rothamsted Research. She is working in collaboration with the University of Nottingham as part of the BBSRC funded Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Doctoral Training Programme (DTP). Her project focuses on evaluating the use of beneficial Gaeumannomyces species for the biocontrol of take all disease in wheat. Tania hopes to further characterise the infection biology of these endophyte species and investigate their mechanism of control and impact on crop health. As part of her project, Tania will be developing a virus induced gene silencing system (VIGS) for wheat root systems, providing a much-needed technique for studying gene function in wheat roots. Tania completed her undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of Sheffield, where she carried out a research project investigating the effect of crop-grass rotations on soil quality and wheat performance.
