Hardwood Genomics Resources Project Completed
June 26, 2016
The “Hardwood Genomics Project”, completed in July 2015, developed genome resources for a wide phylogenetic distribution of ecologically and economically important broadleaf forest tree species in eastern North America. The resources include deep EST databases, annotated transcript sequences for identification of stress-response candidate genes, reagents for marker assisted selection of stress-tolerance, and tools for management of genetic diversity.
