Abstract

In this project we aim to generate SNP markers in Norway spruce and Scots pine to support the Swedish breeding and plant propagation programmes. we will use sequence information from highly multiplexed amplicon sequencing libraries generated from elite trees in the Swedish breeding programmes to identify SNPs associated with specific traits such as disease resistance or somatic embryogenic capacity.
