UBC discovery unlocks tree genetics, gives new hope for pine beetle defense
Date:1/14/2008

id 1990s.

This is the largest recorded bark beetle outbreak in Canada, leaving B.C. with 13 million hectares of grey and red dead pine an area four times the size of Vancouver Island and a volume of dead timber equivalent to 530 million telephone poles.

Bohlmann is leading UBCs and international research programs on forest health genomics. In 2006, Bohlmann and a team of international scientists completed the worlds first physical map and sequencing of a tree genome the third plant ever sequenced.

He is based at UBCs Michael Smith Laboratories, a multidisciplinary research facility. Bohlmann also holds teaching appointments in the departments of Botany and Forest Sciences and is an associate at UBCs Wine Research Centre.
