Powdery mildew resistance in strawberry fruit

October 2019 – September 2023

Samantha Lynn

Samantha studied her BSc in Biological Sciences and MSc in Biochemistry at the University of Greenwich. This PhD project will focus on strawberry resistance against powdery mildew on fruit. Her research activities will centr on the following three areas:

  1. Pathology test and image analysis for powdery mildew on strawberry fruits
  2. Genome-wide association analysis and identification of candidate resistance genes
  3. Validation of strawberry resistance genes through gene deletion
