Grattapaglia, Dario; Vaillancourt, Rene E.; Shepherd, Mervyn; Thumma, Bala R.; Foley, William; Kulheim, Carsten; Potts, Brad M.; Myburg, Alexander A.


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. The family contains over 5,650 species in 130 to 150 genera, predominantly of neo-tropical and Southern Hemisphere distribution. Several genera are well known for their economic importance worldwide. Myrtaceae are typically diploids with small to intermediate genome size. Microsatellites have been developed for several genera while higher...[Show more]
