Pine Genome Reference Sequence

The workshop will focus on the progress and applications of aspects of the Loblolly Pine Genome Project (aka PineRefSeq Project), a USDA-NIFA-funded project to produce reference genome sequences of three conifer species: loblolly pine (Pinus taeda), sugar pine (P. lambertiana), and Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii).
