  • Cork oak (Quercus suber), an evergreen tree characteristic of the Western Mediterranean (Portugal, Spain, Southern France, Italy, North Africa), has a remarkable capacity to produce suberose tissue, the phellem or cork, with unique properties that make it an excellent material for industrial applications. Due to the ecological and socio-economic significance of this species, large scale transcriptomic projects have been recently launched, targeting specific stress tolerance mechanisms and developmental processes such as cork differentiation[1] [2].
