Mapping Population

Locations: University of Tennessee, East Tennessee State Nursery

Principal Investigators: Scott Schlarbaum (University of Tennessee), Haiying Liang (Clemson University)

Co-PI Schlarbaum generated hundreds of seeds from three years of controlled crosses from parent trees 108A and 23. These seeds were subsequently germinated, grown out and maintained in containers. All seedlings of crosses were screened to confirm paternity, yielding 325 full-sibs that were planted at the East Tennessee State Nursery. The population is being maintained by the UT Tree Improvement Program. Planted seedlings are being protected from rabbits and deer with a 1’ tree shelter around the base of each seedling, encompassed by an 18” diameter, 5’ tall cage of woven wire.

Please contact us for more information or if you are interested in utilizing this population for research. Genotype information will be posted here when publicly available.

Polymorphic SSRS

A subset of SSRs have been screened for polymorphism and published in a population diversity study:
