NUTRITIONAL GENOMICS RESEARCH

AT COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY

Connecting Crop Improvement to Human Health

Welcome to the Rhodes Lab!

Our mission is to reduce vitamin A deficiency through crop biofortification.

Research in the Rhodes lab is focused on understanding the genetics of carotenoid variation in order to help breeders develop high provitamin A staple crops.

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