I (David Neale) retired in July 2020 after a 36-year career in California with the US Forest Service Institute of Forest Genetics and the University of California, Davis (Depts. Genetics, Environmental Horticulture and Plant Sciences). I was privileged to have worked with more than 100 very good young scientists and together we published more than 200 papers. I continue at UC Davis as a Distinguished Professor Emeritus, however, I no longer keep an office or lab at UC Davis. I serve as the Genomics Committee Chair at the Whitebark Pine Ecosystem Foundation and am coordinating genome projects in whitebark pine and bristlecone pine at the WPEF. I can be reached at dbneale@ucdavis.edu or david.neale@whitebarkfound.org.
