ProCoGen - Portrayal of a Conifer Tree
Genetic strategiesProCoGen will address genome sequencing of two keystone European conifer species, identifying their genetic diversity by exome re-sequencing. The gained knowledge will be used for breeding strategies and forest management.
Furthermore, the development of new bio-informational solutions will ensure that large amounts of data are translated into useful information. In the course of this process gene families will be formed for further bio information downstream analyses.
The development of comparative studies plays a central role in order to increase the understanding of the evolution and effectiveness of information and resources available in conjunction with other conifer species. In addition, it is planned to establish effective molecular-based pre-breeding material in Europe.
