Tri-allelic SNPs outperform functional candidates for biochemical profile in Cannabis

Genomic technologies have revolutionized the fields of evolutionary biology and genetics, bringing with it the promise of our understanding of the functional basis and inheritance of key traits of interest. On the other hand, the stupendous amount of data generated by such means have not been ma...

Applying Genomic tools to Cannabis Breeding

Humans share a long history with Cannabis, perhaps going back even further back than the dawn of agriculture. As such this plant has traveled the world alongside humanity, consequent introductions of novel variants into the pool of genetics available to farmers and breeders has been both diverse...
