Abstract

We use natural variation in Swedish aspen collection (SwAsp) grown in a common garden to study the timing of autumn senescence and the underlying genetic program. Gene expression patterns of three genotypes displaying early, intermediate or late senescence phenotype will be studied through autumn in order to identify senescence associated genes.
