Awarded for new methods of gene discovery in trees

The MWP 2017 laureate receives the Marcus Wallenberg Prize from the hand of His Majesty The King of Sweden.

Genetic studies presented to honour pioneer

Studies on forest genetics dominate the projects presented during the MWP Event 2017 where young researchers from four countries took part.

“So much cutting-edge research in Sweden”

Junior scientists from North Carolina State University, USA, were impressed by the study tours to companies and departments in forestry and forest research in Stockholm, Sweden.

Forest molecular genetics to improve the quality of trees

Better quality and higher productivity are the incentives for molecular genetics of forest trees. Ronald R. Sederoff is awarded the 2017 Marcus Wallenberg Prize for his breakthroughs in developing methods for gene discovery in conifer species and exploiting new breeding technologies for improved properties.
