Name of project:Methodological procedures of molecular-genetic verification of forest species reproductive material origin in order to protect and reproduce forest tree species genetic resources in frame of measures
Year:2013 - 2017

Description of project

The objective of the project is to obtain new knowledge enabling an identity check sources of reproductive material of selected trees by using optimized molecular-genetic methods. The knowledge will be used by the state administration in the forestry (Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Environment) and by the National Program coordinator (Forest Management Institute) in developing legislative regulations and subsidy policy of the Czech Republic. Within the project the suitable genetic markers are surveyed, the database and the archive of reference samples were founded. Methodologies for authentication clones/ortets for six main forest tree species will be developed in frame of this project.
