Mango is an important industry for Queensland, Australia, with an annual value exceeding $80 million. The Kensington Pride cultivar, prized by consumers for desirable taste and colour characteristics, commands 60% of the domestic market though this market share has declined in recent years as new varieties, such as Calypso™, get established with consumers. In 2005, the Queensland Government's Department of Agriculture and Fisheries commenced the Mango Genomics Initiative. This project brought together multidisciplinary teams of breeders, pathologists, sensory scientists, flavour chemists and molecular biologists to develop a suite of tools and inter-related data sets to support the accelerated development of new commercial mango varieties. An overview of the Mango Genomics Initiative will be presented here culminating in the generation of a draft Kensington Pride mango genome sequence.
