I actually thought it had been sequenced earlier. Now we need to harness it's deciduous and cold hardy properties.

Genome sequencing is never-ending process  because of repeats and population polymorphism.
This recent achievement is covering 97% of poncirus genome

Thank you kumin and Ilya111 for your posts.  It is going to take a longer time to translate, read and then digest all of this information.

I could have sworn I heard one of the speakers from UF at the Southeastern Citrus Expo two years ago say that Swingle citrumelo was resistant to HLB.
