abstract
RFLP and RAPD techniques will be applied with the aim of detecting Quantitative trait loci (QTL) op poplars, especially those related to resistence toward economically important diseases. This will result in powerfull and fast techniques of indirectselection for resistance. Tools for identification of complex hybrids and for the study of genetic similarity of relatives will be developed.
