Understanding Xylem Development in Conifers by in Vitro Studies Grant uri icon



  • To insure future production of high quality wood in trees, this project seeks to understand how wood tracheids are formed and grown in Douglas-fir trees. In-vitro tissue culture will be studied chemically, anatomically, and with molecular/biochemical probes to gain a better understanding of wood cell-wall formation.
