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, and to identify genetic and gene expression responses to weather and climate that contribute to local adaptation.

News

05-Feb-2010: The Western Transcriptome "RNASeq-apalooza I" RNA prep party was a wild success. Research groups prepared libraries for Sugar Pine (Jessica Wright, PSW-USFS), Tan Oak (Katy Hayden, UC-Berkeley) and Douglas-fir (Eriko Miuira, PSW-USFS), and these will be sequenced on the Illumina GA2.
