Forest ecosystem genomics Research: supporTing Transatlantic Cooperation
The FoResTTraC project
FoResTTraC's main aim is to prepare future coordinated research plans, via a strategic research roadmap, between Europe and North America regarding adaptation of forest trees to climate changes, linking different disciplines: ecology, genetics, genomics and evolution.

FoResTTraC brings together a critical mass of research expertise in these disciplines on both sides of the Atlantic with 6 leading European partners, 3 American and 2 Canadian partners. For the time being, large scale genomics projects have been conducted in "parallel" between North America and Europe, lacking in cooperative exchanges and interactions. The leading institutions coordinating these projects are partners of FoResTTraC to ensure that the current state-of-art research is represented in the project.

FoResTTraC will bring together the ongoing efforts of European and North American teams by focusing their attention to the most ecologically and economically important forest tree families on the two continents: Salicaceae, Fagaceae and Pinaceae.
