Eucalypts are the world’s most widely planted hardwood trees. Their outstanding diversity, adaptability and growth have made them a global renewable resource of fibre and energy. We sequenced and assembled >94% of the 640-megabase genome of Eucalyptus grandis. Of 36,376 predicted protein-coding genes, 34% occur in tandem duplications, the largest proportion thus far in plant genomes. Eucalyptus also shows the highest diversity of genes for specialized metabolites such as terpenes that act as… 
Advancing Eucalyptus Genomics: Cytogenomics Reveals Conservation of Eucalyptus Genomes
The genus Eucalyptus encloses several species with high ecological and economic value, being the subgenus Symphyomyrtus one of the most important. Species such as E. grandis and E. globulus are well
Genome and transcriptome sequencing characterises the gene space of Macadamia integrifolia (Proteaceae)
TLDR
The gene space of macadamia provides a foundation for comparative genomics, gene discovery and the acceleration of molecular-assisted breeding, and provides evidence for linage-specific expansion of gene families involved in pathogen recognition, plant defense and monoterpene synthesis.
Identification of the Eucalyptus grandis chitinase gene family and expression characterization under different biotic stress challenges
TLDR
This research provides insight into a major class of defense genes within E. grandis and indicates the importance of the Class I chitinase, which is highly up-regulated within diverse biotic stress conditions.
The Eucalyptus terpene synthase gene family
TLDR
The data indicate that terpenes in Eucalyptus may play a wider role in biotic and abiotic interactions than previously thought and the possibility of stress induction needs further investigation.
Draft genome of Santalum album L. provides genomic resources for accelerated trait improvement
TLDR
The draft genome presented in this study has provided additional genomic resource for S. album for subsequent research in population diversity estimation and accelerated trait breeding in this species.
A whole genome assembly of Leptospermum scoparium (Myrtaceae) for mānuka research
TLDR
The mānuka genome sequence will help shed new light on the genetic control of unique characters such as nectar and foliage biochemical composition, flowering time and disease resistance.
The Chrysanthemum nankingense Genome Provides Insights into the Evolution and Diversification of Chrysanthemum Flowers and Medicinal Traits.
TLDR
The analysis revealed that the evolution of the C. nankingense genome was driven by bursts of repetitive element expansion and WGD events including a recent WGD that distinguishes chrysanthemum from sunflower, which diverged from chrysantshemum approximately 38.8 million years ago.
Hybrid origin of Populus tomentosa Carr. identified through genome sequencing and phylogenomic analysis
TLDR
This study presents a high quality and well assembled genome, unveils the origin of the widely distributed and planted P. tomentosa, and provides a powerful resource for comparative plant biology, breeding, and biotechnology.
Microsatellite resources of Eucalyptus: current status and future perspectives
TLDR
A review on eucalypts microsatellites highlights the availability and characteristics of genomic and eSSRs and their potential in genetic analysis of natural and breeding populations and also discusses the future prospects in population genetics and marker assisted selection.
High-resolution genetic maps of Eucalyptus improve Eucalyptus grandis genome assembly.
TLDR
This study provides the most reliable linkage maps for Eucalyptus and version 2.0 of the E. grandis genome with a total of 43 noncollinear regions and 13 nonsynthetic regions were detected and corrected in the new genome assembly.

Progress in Myrtaceae genetics and genomics: Eucalyptus as the pivotal genus
TLDR
The status of genomics and genetics research in the Myrtaceae, a large family of dicotyledonous woody plants, is reviewed with Eucalyptus as the focal genus, to find candidate gene-based association genetics have successfully found marker–trait associations for wood and fiber traits.
The genome of woodland strawberry (Fragaria vesca)
TLDR
New phylogenetic analysis of 154 protein-coding genes suggests that assignment of Populus to Malvidae, rather than Fabidae, is warranted, and macrosyntenic relationships between Fragaria and Prunus predict a hypothetical ancestral Rosaceae genome that had nine chromosomes.
The Genome of Black Cottonwood, Populus trichocarpa (Torr. & Gray)
TLDR
Analyzing the draft genome of the black cottonwood tree, Populus trichocarpa, revealed a whole-genome duplication event; about 8000 pairs of duplicated genes from that event survived in the Populus genome.
High-throughput gene and SNP discovery in Eucalyptus grandis, an uncharacterized genome
TLDR
It is demonstrated that SNPs sampled in large-scale with 454 pyrosequencing can be used to detect evolutionary signatures among genes, providing one of the first genome-wide assessments of nucleotide diversity and Ka/Ks for a non-model plant species.
Comparative SNP diversity among four Eucalyptus species for genes from secondary metabolite biosynthetic pathways
TLDR
By using conservative statistical detection methods, the extensive characterisation of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in genes of four biosynthetic pathways leading to the formation of ecologically relevant secondary metabolites in Eucalyptus was achieved.
The grapevine genome sequence suggests ancestral hexaploidization in major angiosperm phyla
TLDR
A high-quality draft of the genome sequence of grapevine is obtained from a highly homozygous genotype, revealing the contribution of three ancestral genomes to the grapevine haploid content and explaining the chronology of previously described whole-genome duplication events in the evolution of flowering plants.
High synteny and colinearity among Eucalyptus genomes revealed by high-density comparative genetic mapping
TLDR
The overall high level of synteny and colinearity observed between section Maidenaria–Latoangulatae suggests that the genomes of these species are highly conserved indicating that sequence information from the E. grandis genome will be highly transferable to related Symphyomyrtus species.
Rosid radiation and the rapid rise of angiosperm-dominated forests
TLDR
The timing of the inferred rapid radiation of rosids corresponds with the rapid rise of angiosperm-dominated forests and the concomitant diversification of other clades that inhabit these forests, including amphibians, ants, placental mammals, and ferns.
The banana (Musa acuminata) genome and the evolution of monocotyledonous plants
TLDR
This first monocotyledon high-continuity whole-genome sequence reported outside Poales represents an essential bridge for comparative genome analysis in plants and clarifies commelinid-monocotYledon phylogenetic relationships, reveals Poaceae-specific features and has led to the discovery of conserved non-coding sequences predating monocotinoid–eudicotylingon divergence.
Nuclear DNA content of commercially important Eucalyptus species and hybrids
TLDR
The nuclear DNA content estimates obtained by flow cytometry for a group of twelve Eucalyptus species and five fast-growing hybrids that includes those most widely planted throughout the world are reported, showing the closer the species were in phylogenetic relationship the more similar were their nuclearDNA content values.
