Genetic control of lipid usaturation and frost hardiness in birch

Objective

The molecular regulation of frost hardiness in birch will be investigated by analysing the genes involved in the cold-induced increase in lipid instauration. The impact of changing environmental factors, e.g. UV radiation, will be tested on frost hardiness via their effects on lipid instauration.
