European populations of black poplar

We have used single-primer enrichment technology (SPET) to generate sequence-based genotyping data sets in black poplar (P. nigra). A large-scale study of a natural black poplar population of 540 individuals - sampled from Spain, Italy, France, Germany, and The Netherlands - allowed us to reveal the structure of genetic diversity in Europe and provided the basis for discovering polymorphisms associated with biomass-related traits.
