Tanner M Cook

Predictive Plant Phenomics Trainee - 2018 cohort
Graduate Research Assistant

Tanner joined the Iowa State team in the Fall of 2018 with the Interdepartmental Plant Biology Program as well as the Predictive Plant Phenomics Program. Tanner comes to us from Buena Vista University in northwest Iowa. At BVU, Tanner worked on several research projects including an international collaboration on Sub-Antarctic mosses where he did the chemical analysis to determine anti-microbial properties. Tanner also worked a year with the National Forest service where his merit was recognized for substantial contributions to the broad public interest through research on short rotation woody crops and their use in phytotechnologies. With these experiences, Tanner has developed a strong interest in plant stress response and wants to study more about these processes for the benefit of people.
