UNLABELLED White spruce (Picea glauca) is a dominant conifer of the boreal forests of North America, and providing genomics resources for this commercially valuable tree will help improve forest management and conservation efforts. Sequencing and assembling the large and highly repetitive spruce genome though pushes the boundaries of the current technology.(More)
The mountain pine beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae, is a native species of bark beetle (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) that caused unprecedented damage to the pine forests of British Columbia and other parts of western North America and is currently expanding its range into the boreal forests of central and eastern Canada and the USA. We conducted a large-scale(More)
Substantial efforts have been invested in recent years to characterize the expressed genome of major North American spruce species, namely Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis), white spruce (Picea glauca) and interior spruce (Picea engelmanii × glauca). To date, more than 550,000 spruce expressed sequence tags (ESTs) have been publically deposited, most of which(More)
