Genetics and Biotechnology

From plant breeding to forensic biology, graduates learn what makes forest organisms grow, adapt, and interact with their environment. Learn to measure and conserve genetic diversity in natural populations, or manage it in tree breeding programs. Study the tremendous potential, and possible risks, of planting genetically engineered trees. Discover the genes that make a tree, a tree!
