The primary objective of this study was to assess metabolomics for its capacity to discern biological variation among 10 full-sib families of a Douglas-fir tree breeding population, replicated on two sites. The differential accumulation of small metabolites in developing xylem was examined through metabolite profiles (139 metabolites common to 181 individual trees) generated by gas chromatography mass spectrometry and a series of statistical analyses that incorporated family, site, and tree… CONTINUE READING
