Based on genome-wide sequencing results, the development of genome-wide sequencing of 13 tropical plants including banana (Musa spp.), longan (Dimocarpus longan), papaya (Carica papaya), pineapple (Ananas comosus), coconut (Cocos nucifera), durian (Durio zibethinus), rubber (Hevea brasiliensis), cassava (Manihot esculenta), date palm (Phoenix dactylifera), cocoa (Theobroma cacao), oil palm(Elaeis guineensis), coffee (Coffea canephra) Tiepi-shihu (Dendrobium officinale) was discussed, and the tropical plant genome research was summarized.

Key words: tropical plants, whole genome, next generation sequencing, genetic breeding, functional genes
