Center for Genomic Research on Tree Species (NPGEF)
(Versão em Portugues)

What is NPGEF ?

The Center for Genomic Research on Tree Species (NPGEF) is a virtual institute of information on tree genomics. This page is temporary and will be soon substituted by a much broader, user-friendly database of genes useful for forest conservation and breeding . NPGEF is headquartered in the Department of Forestry Sciences of the Escola Superior de Agricultura "Luiz de Queiroz" (Superior School of Agriculture "Luiz of Queiroz ", ESALQ/USP), and it develops tight collaboration with the Instituto de Pesquisas e Estudos Florestais (Institute of Forestry Research, IPEF).

How does it work ?

A virtual library is available to the users and it contains published and unpublished papers about genomics and about genomics applied to tree species of interest to forestry. The different links takes the user to other pages of the Internet, related to genomics and to genomic projects on tree species.
