Abstract: Today, the genomic research of forage grass is still severely insufficient in comparison of food crops, limiting the dissection of its complex traits and the application of molecular-design breeding. In recent years, with increased demand for forage grass, substantially reduced sequencing cost, as well as rapidly developed sequencing and assembly technologies, the genomes of many important forage grasses have been sequenced and analyzed. Here, we review 18 sequenced leguminous-, gramineous- and cyperaceous-forages, and discuss future direction of forage grass genomic research.

Key words: forage grass, genome sequencing, genome-wide association analysis, genomics, genomic selection
