We present results of two large scale comparative studies of the genomic basis of resistance of Interior spruce to the white pine weevil. Both volume growth, the main objective of the spruce breeding program in British Columbia, and white pine weevil resistance, are examined. "Interior spruce" is a species complex involving mainly Picea glauca (White spruce) but introgressed with P. engelmannii (Englemann spruce), depending upon locality. In the first study, we compared constitutive expression of 17825 genes …
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
