Jean Beaulieu specializes in population and quantitative genetics and forest genomics. He is also Regional Coordinator at the Canadian Wood Fibre Centre in Quebec City.
In the field of population genetics, he deals mostly with conifer phylogeography and the identification of genes for natural selection. In quantitative genetics, he works on genetic variation and control of wood characteristics in spruce and on the development of clonal forestry. In forest genomics, he specializes in the development of marker-assisted selection using candidate gene markers and in genomic selection for wood characteristics in spruce.
