White Pine Blister Rust is decimating populations of white pines. Protection of this species is vital for economic and social purposes. Jermstad et al. found a specific gene in Pinus lambertiana that may confer resistance to WPBR. Techniques include DNA amplification using polymerase chain reaction. Current results failed to find a clear separation between known resistant trees and known susceptible trees. But, new data has been sequenced and is ready to be tested to continue the work.
