METADATA
TitleFuncFiber
CreatorFuncFiber
DescriptionFuncFiber is a Formas centre of excellence in wood science. FuncFiber aims to unravel the function of genes underlying the structure and chemistry of wood fibers. The FuncFiber consortium consists of Swedish research groups from Umeå Plant Science Centre, Umeå University, the Wood Ultrastructure Research Centre and the Royal Institute of Technology with expertise in wood biology and chemistry and is collaborating with the Forest Biotechnology company SweTree Technologies. FuncFiber will produce transgenic lines, analytical databases, novel chemical tools and prediction models for wood properties, and in-depth knowledge about gene function in wood formation. FuncFiber will deliver knowledge that can be exploited in forest tree breeding.
