Alison Thompson

 

Alison left the program during August 2008 to pursue doctoral studies at Washington State University. She proposes to characterize a source of dual resistance to the root-lesion nematodes Pratylenchus neglectus and P. thornei, using mapping populations developed during her employment in this program. She also hopes to develop molecular markers for tracking this resistance in wheat breeding programs. While employed in this Plant Pathology program Alison was actively engaged in all aspects of screening wheat for resistance and tolerance to root-lesion nematodes, cereal cyst nematodes and Fusarium crown rot. Alison can be contacted via her email address at WSU (thompson20@wsu.edu).
