Book Description

Musa is one of three genera in the family of Musaceae. Over 50 species of Musa exist, including bananas and plantains. This book assembles the latest information on the genomic research of this genus. A group of leading experts in Musa genetics, genomics, and breeding provide basic as well as advanced information for those interested in learning more about the banana genome. The accessible style is easily understood by students and researchers, making the book an ideal springboard for those looking to do expanded research into this crop.
