Forest Genetic Resources Department

In order to improve productivity of tree species, and increase people’s incomes in rural areas and forest villages, we develop technology for improving genetic gain and breeding new variety of timber tree species; conserve and utilize useful forest genetic resources; apply biotechnology for developing high value-added forest resources; and develop and provide non-timber forest resources.

Forest Genetic Resources Division

Forest Genetic Resources Division aims to collect, evaluate, conserve and manage rare and endangered species and useful forest genetic resources. We focus on developing DNA markers, assessing genetic diversity, developing sampling strategies for conservation, determining effective population size, characterizing optimal environmental condition and physiological characteristics of the susceptible species against climate change, etc. The goals of the Division are increasing genetic diversity in protected areas for forest genetic resources, expanding in situ conservation forests, establishing ex situ conservation plantations, establishing a seed bank, evaluating viability of the stored seeds, and building a digital database of forest genetic resources. Moreover, we perform research on restoration of habitats for the rare and endangered tree genetic resources-vulnerable to climate and environmental changes.
