Genetic Infrastructure is the rapidly growing body of plant genetic reference data that enables development of tools for a multitude of applications. DoubleHelix is building Genetic Infrastructure around the globe and creating tools to support the legal and sustainable timber trade while protecting conservation areas and natural capital.
The impact of helping countries gain and utilise the genetic sovereignty of their forests goes way beyond improved law enforcement, governance and trade. A comprehensive genetic picture of our forests can help with landscape reconstruction and adaptation to climate change. The benefits of investment today stretch over hundreds of years and are of immeasurable value to a responsibly planned future.
