Dr. Todd Gaines, Bioagricultural Science & Pest Management
Todd Gaines is an assistant professor at Colorado State University in molecular weed science. He completed his PhD at CSU, followed by post-docs in Western Australia and Germany. His research goal is to support sustainable weed management that helps contribute to sustainable cropping systems, including identifying the molecular and genetic basis of complex herbicide resistance mechanisms; utilizing next-generation sequencing to study complex traits in weeds; and developing molecular markers for rapid resistance diagnostics.
