Dr Anuradha Bansal

Postdoctoral Scientist
Crop Genetics

I am a molecular plant pathologist with a PhD in molecular pathology of wheat. I enjoy plant biology and find it fascinating. Though I am particularly interested in applied aspect and want to work towards developing tools and resources to link research laboratories with plant breeders and target consumers.

I am currently working on two different projects. First one is population diversity of Hymenoscyphus fraxineus (causal pathogen of Ash dieback) isolates in different regions of UK using SNP based markers.

The second project is aimed towards understanding the interactions between pathogens for yellow rust and septoria tritici blotch on wheat and how the plant responses to one disease can affect responses of resistance genes for countering the second pathogen.
