Danielle Wrucke, Ph.D., presented her Plant Sciences dissertation, Genetic Analysis of Frost Tolerance in Rapeseed/Canola (Brassica napus L.), on Friday, July 21, 2017. Wrucke’s study evaluated canola for frost tolerance using greenhouse, field, and electrolyte leakage studies. Genome-wide association scanning was conducted on all three traits to identify markers related to frost tolerance.

Wrucke credits supportive faculty with a talent for teaching for her decision to remain with Plant Sciences for her undergraduate and graduate level degrees. During her time as a doctoral student she was inducted into Gamma Sigma Delta and served as president of the Plant Sciences Graduate Student Association (2015).

Wrucke has accepted a position as Associate Wheat Breeder with Bayer Crop Science.

Wrucke’s graduate committee members were Dr. Edward Deckard, Dr. Luis del Rio, Dr. Kevin McPhee, Dr. Phillip McClean, and Dr. David Horvath. She was advised by Dr. Mukhlesur Rahman.
