Pine Wilt Disease: recent advances in molecular analyses and breeding approaches

Evento online

In this webinar, recent research on pine wilt disease will be presented by speakers from several Institutions in Portugal (INIAV, ITQB-NOVA, FCiências, Universidade de Évora, Universidade de Coimbra, Ciências ULisboa) and Spain (Centro de Investigacion Forestal de Lourizán). The results from the project PINASTER-PWN will be discussed.
