Mango genomics

Mango is the fifth most important subtropical/tropical fruit crop worldwide with production centered in India and South East Asia. Due to the difficulty of specific pollination, mango breeding is still predominantly the selection of trees with superior fruit traits rather than hybrid production and evaluation. Recently, there has been a worldwide interest in mango genomics to produce tools for Marker Assisted Selection and trait association. There are five transcriptomes produced respectively in Israel, India, Mexico, Pakistan and the US. A genetic map has been produced and there are three separate genome sequencing projects currently underway (India, Australia, US/Israel). The workshop will allow the participants to present their data, explore new collaborations and enhance research in mango biology and breeding by adapting new technologies and incorporating ideas from other sessions.
