Abstract

Proteomic analysis of beech bark proteins from trees resistant and susceptible to beech bark disease (BBD) was conducted. Sixteen trees from eight geographically isolated stands, 10 resistant (healthy) and 6 susceptible (diseased/infested) trees, were studied. The genetic complexity of the sample unit, the sampling across a wide geographic area, and the complexity of the BBD "treatment" all contribute to possible protein differences between trees in the study. This complexity required careful study design and more elaborate statistical considerations than many proteomics studies.
