Cambridge Biosciences DTP PhD Programme



Research theme: Bioscience for sustainable agriculture and food


Project Title:

Novel genetic diversity from synthetic-hexaploids and tetraploid-hexaploids in hybrid wheat

Project Summary:

Yeorgia is a PhD student in NIAB's Cambridge Crop Science division, working on hybrid wheat. Her main project uses wheat with genes from ancestral species to assess whether the increased genetic diversity has an effect on yield in hybrids. She is also doing a transcriptomics experiment to look at the changes in gene expression in hybrid wheat.
