METADATA
TitleBritish Ash Tree Genome Project
CreatorQueen Mary University of London
Description‚ÄčThis website hosts ash genome data to assist scientists in the search for genes that may confer resistance to ash dieback (Hymenoscyphus fraxinea) and the emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis). Scientists at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) in Richard Buggs' lab have sequenced the genome of the European ash tree (Fraxinus excelsior), funded by an urgency grant awarded by the Natural Environment Research Council in 2013. The ash genome and associated data have now been published in Nature. Data for other ash species are being added.
