Challenges associated with adapting genomics technologies to forestry The emergence of the polymerase chain reaction, Sanger DNA sequencing, and microarrays, to the latest in massively parallel sequencing of RNA and DNA and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) arrays, have revolutionised the field of Genetics. However these technologies have in almost all instances been developed and optimised for Human and mammalian models. Despite commercial providers assurance that new technologies are species (or Kingdom!) neutral, frequently the adaption of these technologies for plants has taken considerable optimisation. In the case of large, pre-reference genome conifer species, our journey from cutting edge technology to practical application has been a challenge. Keywords: Megagenome, Next Generation Genomics, Forestry, Genotyping
