Summary of SSGP
This project aims to begin to investigate the genetic basis of adaptation in coast redwood using genome-based tools
developed and successfully applied for similar studies in loblolly pine (Pinus taeda), Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga
menziesii) and other conifers. The information gained from this study will be novel in that we will generate the
first genome-based tools for redwood, a species generally considered to be recalcitrant to such genetic analysis due
to its large and polyploid genome.
