Association genetics of essential oil traits in Eucalyptus loxophleba: explaining variation in oil yield

Padovan, Amanda; Webb, Hamish; Mazanec, Richard; Grayling, Peter; Bartle, John; Foley, William; Kulheim, Carsten


York gum (Eucalyptus loxophleba Benth) is widely planted in semi-arid regions of Australia for the production of Eucalyptus oil, a mixture of terpenes dominated by the monoterpene 1,8-cineole. Increasing oil yield in this species would improve the profitability of this crop and enhance its use in sustainable land management systems in Australia. To this end, we sequenced ten structural genes in the terpene biosynthetic pathway of ~400 individuals of E. loxophleba. Of the 4353 allelic variants...[Show more]
