Twenty people attend the meeting, eight of them gave oral presentations. A major focus of the meeting was the resistance to white pine blister rust caused by the exotic pathogen Cronartium ribicola; as well as the development of new genomic and transcriptomic resources in sugar pine, whitebark pine, western white pine, and other Strobus pines species.
Presentations:
  • Charles Langley (UC Davis) Genomics of Cr1 in sugar pine
  • Detlev Vogler (US Forest Service), White pine blister rust in sugar pine
  • Jessica Wright (US Forest Service), Transcriptomic resources in white pines
  • Pedro Martinez-Garcia (UCDavis), Transcriptome of sugar pine
  • Zolton Bair (Oregon State University), Using transcriptomics to identify candidate genes associated with blister rust resistance in whitebark pine
  • Jun-jun Liu (Natural resources Canada), White pine blister rust in western white pine
  • Richard Sniezko (US Forest Service), Rust resistance in the 8 white pine species of western North America: where are we now?
  • Bob Westfall (US Forest Service), Recruitment and mortality in high elevation 5 needle pines-adaptation to climate change
