Eucalyptus L’He´ rit. is a genus comprised of more than 700 species that is of vital importance ecologically to
Australia and to the forestry industry world-wide, being grown in plantations for the production of solid
wood products as well as pulp for paper. With the sequencing of the genomes of Arabidopsis thaliana and
Oryza sativa and the recent completion of the first tree genome sequence, Populus trichocarpa, attention has
turned to the current status of genomic research in Eucalyptus. For several eucalypt species, large segregating
families have been established, high-resolution genetic maps constructed and large EST databases
generated. Collaborative efforts have been initiated for the integration of diverse genomic projects and will
provide the framework for future research including exploiting the sequence of the entire eucalypt genome
which is currently being sequenced. This review summarises the current position of genomic research in
Eucalyptus and discusses the direction of future research.
