ForestGEN (FORest EST and GENome database) provides EST (Expressed Sequenced Tag) and genome information on creatures living in forests, including trees, microbes such as fungi and nematodes, insects and mushrooms.
This database contributes to advances in forest sciences in areas such as Genomics, Population genetics, Plant pathology, Tree breeding and Ecology.
These advances will help to develop forest management practices and strategies to maximize forest utility.
Moreover, this database will contribute to the discovery of new, useful genes from the unknown treasure house of gene resources that is the forest ecosystem.
Partner and Funding
ForestGEN is the result of a collaboration between three Departments of the Forestry and Forest Products Research Institute (FFPRI); Dept of Forest Microbiology, Dept of Forest Genetics and Dept of Molecular and Cell Biology.
