Deputies:

Dario Grattapaglia, Brazil

Armand Seguin, Canada

About Unit

The Working Party on Molecular Biology of Forest Trees is concerned with all aspects of molecular genetic methods for study and manipulation of forest trees. Included are use of molecular markers for genome mapping and diversity analysis, molecular studies of tree physiology and development, marker-based breeding and selection, gene isolation and genetic engineering, and in-vitro culture and asexual gene transfer.
