Towards the Development of Heartwood-free Eucalypts

Towards the Development of Heartwood-free Eucalypts

This project was directed at exploring opportunities to use molecular tools to enhance permeability of heartwood in eucalypt stems. The research focused on the molecular basis of tylosis formation in order that it might be regulated. This involved the development of cDNA libraries for the study of gene expression during tylosis formation and the identification of molecular pathways involved in tylosis formation.
