Conifer Comparative Genomics

Comparative genomics is an important tool for integrating information across the Pinaceae.  Among conifers, the largest efforts in genetics and genomics have focused on loblolly pine and spruce, which bridge the pine family.  Differences among genotypes, populations, and transfer of genomic information between spruce and pine will further advance knowledge about defense mechanisms.  Please click on the links below to learn more about our comparative genomics projects:
