Closed project (2012-2015) involving 20 partners (see the project site).

The project (European Union's Seventh Framework Programme, FP7/2007-2013) aims at developing an integrated and multidiscplinary research on conifer genomics.


Promoting Conifer Genomic Resources

The main goal of this project is to develop an integrative and multidisciplinary genomic research in conifers, using high-throughput platforms for sequencing, genotyping and functional analysis, to unravel genome organization and to identify genes and gene networks controlling important ecological and economic traits, such as those related to the control and the reduction of climatic change impact in relation to growth, drought and cold stress.
