Nucleotide diversity and linkage disequilibrium in loblolly pine.
Outbreeding species with large, stable population sizes, such as widely distributed conifers, are expected to harbor relatively more DNA sequence polymorphism. Under the neutral theory of molecularExpand

Association genetics of complex traits in conifers.
Association studies are becoming the experimental approach of choice to dissect complex traits in many organisms from humans to model plant systems. The candidate gene based-association approach hasExpand

From genotype to phenotype: unraveling the complexities of cold adaptation in forest trees
Adaptation to winter cold in temperate and boreal trees involves complex genetic, physiological, and developmental processes. Genecological studies demonstrate the existence of steep genetic clinesExpand

Decoding the massive genome of loblolly pine using haploid DNA and novel assembly strategies
BackgroundThe size and complexity of conifer genomes has, until now, prevented full genome sequencing and assembly. The large research community and economic importance of loblolly pine, Pinus taedaExpand

Patterns of Population Structure and Environmental Associations to Aridity Across the Range of Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda L., Pinaceae)
Natural populations of forest trees exhibit striking phenotypic adaptations to diverse environmental gradients, thereby making them appealing subjects for the study of genes underlying ecologicallyExpand

Forest tree genomics: growing resources and applications
Over the past two decades, research in forest tree genomics has lagged behind that of model and agricultural systems. However, genomic research in forest trees is poised to enter into an importantExpand

Putting the landscape into the genomics of trees: approaches for understanding local adaptation and population responses to changing climate
The Forest ecosystem genomics Research: supporTing Transatlantic Cooperation project (FoResTTraC, http://www.foresttrac.eu/) sponsored a workshop in August 2010 to evaluate the potential for using aExpand

Comparative Mapping in the Pinaceae
A comparative genetic map was constructed between two important genera of the family Pinaceae. Ten homologous linkage groups in loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) and Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesiiExpand

Unique Features of the Loblolly Pine (Pinus taeda L.) Megagenome Revealed Through Sequence Annotation
The largest genus in the conifer family Pinaceae is Pinus, with over 100 species. The size and complexity of their genomes (∼20–40 Gb, 2n = 24) have delayed the arrival of a well-annotated referenceExpand

DNA Sequence Variation and Selection of Tag Single-Nucleotide Polymorphisms at Candidate Genes for Drought-Stress Response in Pinus taeda L.
Genetic association studies are rapidly becoming the experimental approach of choice to dissect complex traits, including tolerance to drought stress, which is the most common cause of mortality andExpand
