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, and to identify genetic and gene expression responses to weather and climate that contribute to local adaptation.
The Cronn lab is now on OpenWetWare! (But if you made it this far, you already knew that.)
