The purpose of the Forest Biotechnology Group is to engage in research that promotes innovation in basic science and applies new discoveries and technology to advance practical problems of forest trees. This purpose is implemented through research, scientist training, and technology transfer. Interactions with other research groups, at NC State University and worldwide, contribute to meeting these goals. The research is carried out with support from federal competitive grants and from an NCSU based industrial research cooperative, the Forest Biotechnology Industrial Research Consortium (FORBIRC), operating since 1988.
