The availability of high-resolution, cost-effective polymorphic genetic markers displaying Mendelian inheritance is a prerequisite for fine-scale population genetic analyses as well as informed conservation and sustainable management. Silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) is a widespread European species of economic and ecological importance for which genetic(More)
UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY We present a protocol for the annotation of transcriptome sequence data and the identification of candidate genes therein using the example of the nonmodel conifer Abies alba. • METHODS AND RESULTS A normalized cDNA library was built from an A. alba seedling. The sequencing on a 454 platform yielded more than 1.5 million(More)
BACKGROUND Local adaptation is a key driver of phenotypic and genetic divergence at loci responsible for adaptive traits variations in forest tree populations. Its experimental assessment requires rigorous sampling strategies such as those involving population pairs replicated across broad spatial scales. METHODS A hierarchical Bayesian model of selection(More)
