LABORATORY OF FOREST GENETICS AND TREE IMPROVEMENT




The Laboratory of Forest Genetics and Tree Improvement of INRA Cestas is conducting activities in population and quantitative genetics of temperate and tropical tree species. The activities are oriented in five different fields :

1) Population and evolutionary genetics of Fagaceae species (mainly Quercus (oaks) and Fagus (beech)), tropical trees of the French Guyana rain forest and Maritime pine,

2) Genetic mapping, QTL analysis and marker assisted selection in Maritime pine (Pinus pinaster) and Eucalypts (Eucalyptus urophylla and E. grandis)

3) Proteome analysis (see the Protéome Vert Web site)

4) Genome analysis

5) Tree improvement and selection methods in Maritime pine (Pinus pinaster), Black pine (Pinus nigra), Yellow poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera) and Northern red oak (Q. rubra).

Our group is composed of 11 scientists, 3 technicians and on average 10 graduate students (Ph.D or M.S. students). The laboratory has a broad range of facilities in molecular genetics, tree breeding techniques, data analysis. It benefits also from the facilities offered by the local Forestry Experimental Unit that manages the experimental plantations (a total area of 300 ha). Besides the funding by INRA, research projects are supported by different grants from the Région Aquitaine, the French Ministries of Research and Agriculture and the European Union.
