Dr Todd Gaines
Molecular Weed Science
Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO
email@example.comSustainable Production Systems: Implications of Glyphosate ResistanceABSTRACT:
Sustainable weed management is essential for sustainable cropping systems. The seminar will describe 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. This research has implications for the evolutionary trajectories of weedy species subject to human management (specifically herbicides and herbicide resistance evolution), and the development of genomics and bioinformatics resources to study herbicide resistance traits in weedy species and crops.
Faculty, Staff and Students are invited to an informal discussion over pizza with Dr Gaines following the seminar in Kottman 202F. Please RSVP to Dave Barker (for catering)
Please contact Dave Barker if you would like to meet individually with Dr Gaines on Wednesday afternoon.HOST:
