Meet Our Innovators

Todd Gaines, PhD

Associate Professor, Molecular Weed Science, Agricultural Biology

Areas of Collaborative Interest

  • Changes in evolutionary trajectories of weedy species due to human management
  • Herbicides and herbicide resistance evolution
  • Development of genomics and bioinformatics resources to study herbicide resistance traits
  • Licensing our technologies

My research works on developing and supporting sustainable weed management that helps contribute to sustainable cropping systems.  Specifically, I am interested in research to better identify 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.
