Abstract

Conifer biotechnology is reviewed, covering transformation, molecular analysis of transgenic material, functional analysis of genes and promoters in conifers and model systems, and the development of early screening technologies for new introduced traits. Technologies and concepts that promise to be of significant advantage to conifer biotechnology in the new century are discussed.
