IBBR - URT Udine

The Unit Foundation

*

The IBBR research unit at the Institute of Applied Genomics (IGA) was established to consolidate the already fruitful collaboration between the two institutes and to extend it to the entire CNR, considering that genomics and bioinformatics represent two important branches of the scientific activity of numerous CNR institutes and department. In fact, the Institute of Applied Genomics has state-of-the-art equipment and solid skills for the production and the bioinformatic analysis of high-throughput sequencing data. The URT therefore aims to allow the exchange between the two institutions of already consolidated competences and represents an opportunity for the development of new knowledge and tools with especial interest in the genomics of forest species.

Research activities

*
Current research activities at Udine Division may be summarized as follows:

  • generation of genomic data using new generation sequencing and genotyping techniques to dissect the role of demography and selection in the distribution of genetic diversity in species of agricultural and forestry interest;
  • use of “Genotyping by sequencing” (GBS) technology to obtain a large-scale genetic characterization of germplasm collections of different forest tree species;
  • carry out association studies between molecular markers and traits related to biotic and abiotic stress adaptation in species of agricultural and forest interest;
  • study the effect of domestication on the distribution of genetic diversity in species of agricultural and forestry interest;
  • reconstruction of the evolutionary history of species of agricultural and forestry interest.
