Researchers Map Genome Of Two Important Spruce Tree Species
2013-05-23 07:52:22

The genomes of two of the most economically important forest trees in the world were released by Canadian and Swedish scientists. Between them, the white spruce and the Norway spruce genomes have 20-30 billion base-pairs and are up to 10 times larger than the human genome, making these sequence assemblies the largest to date.
