Collection Protocol for Chestnut Genotype Project


About the Chestnut Genotyping Project

Dennis Fulbright at Michigan State University and Jeanne Romero-Severson at the University of Notre Dame are developing genetic tests to detect the ancestry of chestnut selections and cultivars.

The success of this project depends on a broadly based sample of American, European, Japanese and Chinese chestnut trees. We have a very good set of Chinese chestnuts but need more of the other species. If you believe your tree is a "pure species" chestnut, whether American, European, or Japanese, send us a sample, with your ID and the tree's location. We also need more Ozark and Allegheny chinkapins.

Click HERE to get instructions for submitting twigs and leaves from your tree. If you have more than one tree, please contact Jeanne Romero-Severson at Jeanne.Romero-Severson.1@nd.edu before sending samples.
