Professor John Snape

Emeritus Fellow

John’s research is the use of genetic and physiological tools to understand the genetic control of agriculturally important traits in wheat, to provide ‘plant breeders’ toolkits’.

These are essential to help UK and Developing Country plant breeders and farmers to improve adaptability, sustainability and productivity of the world’s second most important crop.

Currently, John works as a Consultant advising national and international organisations on research directions and strategy.
