Welcome!

The Cronn Lab is a part of the USDA Forest Service's Pacific Northwest Research Station located in Corvallis, Oregon.

Focus

The Plant Genetics and Silviculture Team studies the genetic structure and basis of adaptation in plants distributed across forested lands in the Pacific Northwest region of the U.S. (Alaska, Oregon and Washington). Our molecular lab uses genotyping and genomics approaches to map the distribution of geographic genetic variation as part of our continuing effort to identify genetic and gene expression responses to weather and climate, both of which play an important role in local adaptation.

Research groups from the USFS Pacific Southwest Station, Pacific Northwest Station, and UC-Berkeley prepared Illumina RNA-Seq libraries for Sugar Pine (Jessica Wright, PSW-USFS), Tan Oak (Katy Hayden, UC-Berkeley) and Douglas-fir (Eriko Miuira, PSW-USFS). Prepare for the data tsunami!
