Willow Genomics


JCVI is part of a consortium that includes Cornell University, the Joint Genomes Institute and West Virginia University to sequence the genome of the shrub willow, Salix purpurea, as a potential bioenergy crop. In collaboration with Cornell University, we are using RNA-seq to investigate transcriptional variation associated with hybrid vigor in triploid willow species.
