CLONE IDENTIFICATION OF THE AMERICAN BEECH TREE USING MOLECULAR GENETICS TECHNIQUES
Biology Honors Thesis Seminar
The beetle scale attacks the bark of the American Beech tree and creates an opening for a fungus which causes Beech Bark Disease. This disease is fatal to all beech trees except those that are genetically resistant. Marie has used a variety of molecular techniques to identify genetic similarities and differences between beech trees in an attempt to identify and increase the number of trees resistant to this disease.
