Rod Snowdon

Professor of Plant Breeding
Justus Liebig University

Rod Snowdon is Professor of Plant Breeding at Justus Liebig University in Giessen, Germany, where he completed his PhD 1997 after studying biology in New Zealand. Today he leads a large research group working on crop genome analysis, quantitative trait dissection and breeding of major crop plants with a focus on canola and cereals. He also holds honorary professorships in China and Australia. Rod collaborates extensively with national and international partners in numerous public-private research consortia on crop genomics, phenomics and bioinformatics. Besides classical quantitative genetics and molecular breeding, his research includes approaches to implement automated phenotyping, high-throughput genotyping, genome sequencing and genome structure analyses along with predictive modelling into analyses and dissection of complex trait regulation.
