Targeted Musa Genome Sequencing and Frame Map Construction (SP2).
Developing basic genomic tools to assist germplasm exploitation is important for Musa (banana), especially in the context of the use of Musa genomic diversity. Moreover, it is also a top priority in the vision of the whole genome sequencing. The initiation of genomic sequencing to identify genes will allow exploitation of breeding-relevant genetic variation within Musa. The GCP has promoted the development of publicly available, well-characterized genomic resources in order to integrate them with ongoing, trait-based research in Musa.
