DescriptionHardwood tree improvement in Indiana is on the brink of entering the 21st century with the recent initiation of the Hardwood Tree Improvement and Regeneration Center (HTIRC) at Purdue University. At a time when midwestern agriculture has enthusiastically embraced genetically modified insect and herbicide resistant corn and soybean crops and all the human genes are close to being sequenced through the human genome or genes project, we can now begin to envision similar advancements of discovery and the applications thereof to genetic improvement with hardwood trees.
