Marker-assisted selection in temperate eucalypts

Presented by Simon Southerton, CSIRO Plant Industry, Wednesday 31 July 2013.

Simon leads the Forest Genomics research in CSIRO Plant Industry. He has a degree and PhD in agricultural science from the University of Sydney. For the last 10 years his research has focused on identifying DNA markers in eucalypts and pines that control variation in commercially important traits including wood quality, disease resistance and growth. In recent years his team has identified dozens of markers influencing pulp yield in E. globulus and E. nitens and developed methods for their application in commercial breeding programs to dramatically accelerate improvement of key commercial traits. This webinar will be on Simon’s research report “Accelerated breeding for high pulp yield in E. nitens using DNA markers identified in 100 cell wall genes: The Hottest 100”. (project PNC052-0708).
