Dr. Ganopoulos received his BSc degree in Agriculture from the University of Thessaly (2000-2005) and his MS and PhD in Plant Breeding from AUTH (2005-2007/2008–2013). He has been awarded a Heracleitus PhD scholarship by the European Social Fund and the Hellenic National Fund. His recent scientific interests focus on epigenetics, DNA methylation, whole genome sequencing and trascriptomic analysis for molecular breeding purposes. He has participated in four research projects, one of them competitive European project. He has published 117 reviewed articles in SCI journals and h-index=30 (citations 2675 in Scholar Google). He was a co-worker in national/international projects and he is Editor in Biochemical Genetics journal. A list of 3 relevant publications is given below:
