Abstract

Biotechnology has been revolutionizing human activity in the most diverse areas. In the forestry sector technologies are being rapidly incorporated such as transgenics based on studies in genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics. The association of biotechnology with conventional programs for the improvement of trees can accelerate the process of development of products with specific characteristics. In the paper and cellulose industry, the sourcing of trees with a reduced content or altered composition of lignin is one of the examples of the application of these technologies. The present project aimed to modify the quality of eucalyptus wood altering its composition. The proposal was to obtain a product with different chemical properties and physical characteristics, enabling a reduction in the costs of the industrial paper production process. (AU)
