Save the Redwoods League, University of California, Davis, and Johns Hopkins University have successfully sequenced the coast redwood and giant sequoia genomes, reaching the first major milestone of a five-year project to develop the tools to study these forests’ genomic diversity.... Continued
The genome sequences and the screening tools developed will allow researchers to quickly assess genetic diversity in redwood forests to inform plans that restore the health and resilience of these forests as they face environmental stressors such as climate change.
