NUTRITIONAL GENOMICS RESEARCH

AT COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY

Connecting Crop Improvement to Human Health

Welcome to the Rhodes Lab!

Our research is focused on understanding the genetics of crop nutritional traits in order to help breeders develop healthier staple crops.

We use tools from crop genetics, human nutrition, and analytical chemistry to strategize and carry out crop biofortification, focusing primarily on sorghum and potato.

Our mission is to reduce malnutrition through biofortification.
