Sammanfattning : Norway spruce (Picea abies) is a dominant tree species in boreal forests with extensive ecological and economic value. Climate change is threatening these ecosystems, with rising temperatures impacting cold hardening and increasing drought stress in regions experiencing lower precipitation. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Genomics projects, including genome sequencing, transcriptomics, genome-wide association mapping and epigenetics assays, producevast quantities of data. Extracting the required information from such complex datasets is a significant challenge and even where software tools do exist, these are often not intuitive or designed fornon-specialist users. LÄS MER
3. Embracing the data flood : integrating diverse data to improve phenotype association discovery in forest trees
Sammanfattning : Complex traits represent valuable research targets as many highly desirable properties of plants and animals (such as growth rate and height) fall into this group. However, associating biological markers with these traits is incredibly challenging, in part due to their small effect sizes. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Embedded within the relationships among species is a dense forest of gene trees, each with a potentially unique and discordant history. Such widespread genealogical heterogeneity is expected, but embracing this hierarchy of discordance while reconstructing the histories of populations and species remains a major challenge. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Leaves are essential for sustaining humanity as they function as the energy and oxygen-producing organ of plants. Intensive research on physiological processes has contributed immensely to our understanding of the function of leaves. However, comparatively little is known about how leaf size and shape is determined. LÄS MER
