GENECAR (2005-2010)

Centre for advanced research in forest genetics and tree breeding (2005-2010)

Coordinator: Tore Skröppa,


This centre promoted and coordinated collaboration among Nordic forest geneticists and tree breeders, aiming to make their activities more cost efficient. Besides conducting advanced research, it also disseminated research results to different end-users and stakeholders. The following research projects were to be included in the first phase of GENECAR:

  • genetics of climate adaptation of boreal forest trees
  • breeding of boreal forest trees
  • gene research and biotechnology
  • conservation genetics of Nordic trees and woody plants
