1000 Genomes Cottonwood Genetics and Bioenergy Project

A large common garden experiment with 1000 genotypes of black cottowood Populus trichocarpa is currently ongoing at SEGA's Bradshaw Ranch site, west of Sedona. The genotypes, take from the center of the tree's natural range were propagated in the NAU Research Greenhouses and planted in spring 2016, as well as at another site in Oregon on GreenWood Resources property. The genome-wide association study (GWAS) is funded by the U.S. DOE BioSciences Energy Center and is coordinated by the Plant Molecular Biology Group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
