About This Project

In just the last decade, this wood-boring insect has killed tens of millions of ash trees in North America and is a growing threat to European ash. The goal of this project is to discover genes from Asian ash trees which allow them to resist the insect in order to save the multi-billion dollar ash resources in North America and Europe.

Blast off!
