Conference “IUFRO Genomics and Forest Tree Genetics” (Aquitaine, France – May 30 – Jun 3, 206)

IUFRO Genomics and Forest Tree Genetics
30 May – 3rd June, 2016
Aquitaine, France

This conference will bring together researchers from the four working parties of IUFRO subdivision 2.4 (Forest Genetics) to present and discuss new scientific findings in the area of population, quantitative and evolutionary genetics and how they can be applied in genetic resource conservation and breeding.

Participants will be able to submit contributions from empirical, experimental and theoretical pieces of work, that address key leading scientific and applied issues.

Main topics:
Local adaptation and speciation
Linking phenotype, genotype and environment
Abiotic stress responses and biotic interactions
Phylogenetics and genomic evolution
Genomics in breeding and conservation
Resources, tools and methods

Plus a workshop on genomic selection.
