Summary of CCGP

Genetic maps have been constructed for many different forest tree species. A variety of genetic marker types have been used (RFLPs, RAPDs, SSRs, AFLPs) and quantitative trait loci (QTLs) have been mapped for many different traits. Sadly, it is nearly impossible to compare genetic maps between and even with species and develop a synthesis of genome information in forestry.
