The purpose of the conference is to review the status of recent genomic and genetic discoveries in the Fagaceae as they relate to forest and ecosystem health. The Fagaceae are an important group of forest trees distributed widely across the northern hemisphere. The conference will focus on three genera, Castanea (chestnuts), Quercus (oaks) and Fagus (beeches), though reports of work with related genera are encouraged. We anticipate the conference will provide:

    • a forum for sharing recently developed genomic resources and tools
    • a venue for scientists and researchers to identify collaborative opportunities to drive the next generation of studies
    • insight on how to confront forest health issues facing members of the Fagaceae
    • enhanced opportunity for graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and young investigators to participate in an international forum
    • professional continuing education credit hours from the Society of American Foresters

This conference is made possible by funding and inkind contributions from the following organizations:

  • ArborGen, LLC
  • Roche and 454 Sequencing
  • The Schatz Center for Tree Molecular Genetics
  • European Union’s Evoltree Project
  • Institute of Forest Biotechnology
  • North Carolina Biotechnology Center
  • North Carolina State University
