Quercus lobata (ValleyOak3.0)

About Quercus lobata

Quercus lobata is a white oak of the Fagaceae family that is native to the interior of California, North America. It is a diploid species (2n=2x=24) with an estimated genome size of ∼730 Mbp. Mature specimens can grow up to 600 years. Valley oaks are important to California’s diverse Native American communities and their cultures, including influencing historic trade routes, and location of settlements. Its wood is used in cabinetry and hardwood flooring.

The Valley Oak Genome Project is an over-arching research program centered on an NSF-funded partnership between UCLA and Johns Hopkins University.
