FastTRAC: Operational Applications of Genomic Selection
10:00 am to 11:00 am (PST)
Thursday, January 28, 2021


This 1-hr webinar will showcase the operational applications of the FastTRAC genomics project to tree improvement programs in Quebec and New Brunswick. Genomic selection involves genotyping and modeling to predict associations between genetic markers and phenotypic traits of interest (e.g. growth, wood density, insect resistance). This new technology can accelerate the selection of trees with desirable genetic characteristics for breeding and seed production.  

Presenters include:
  • Dr. Jean Bousquet, FastTRAC Project Lead,and Professor/Canada Research Chair in Forest Genomics, Université Laval, Québec
  • Dr. Patrick Lenz, Research Scientist, CWFC, Québec
  • Dr. Martin Perron, Research Scientist, Ministère des Forêts, de la Faune et des Parcs du Québec
  • Greg Adams, RPF, former Director, Forest Research and Development, JD Irving Ltd., New Brunswick
