Dr. B. Todd Campbell is a Research Geneticist currently working on the genetic enhancement of cotton. His research applies traditional breeding, genetics, genomics, and high throughput phenotyping to improve cotton fiber quality, tolerance to abiotic stress, and yield stability--all while increasing genetic diversity and expanding cotton’s genetic base.
