Mutation breeding of Highgate (Musa acuminata, AAA) for tolerance to Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense using gamma irradiation

Explants of in vitro-grown cultures of banana were exposed to various doses of gamma radiation to evaluate the effectiveness of inducing mutations and also to produce variants tolerant to the fungus Fusarium oxysporum f.

TECHNICAL ARTICLE Homoeologous chromosome pairing between the A and B genomes of Musa spp. revealed by genomic in situ hybridization

It was clearly demonstrated that interspecific recombinations between M. acuminata and M. balbisiana chromosomes do occur and may be frequent in triploid hybrids, and these results provide new insight into Musa cultivar evolution and have important implications for breeding.

Comparison of PCR-based molecular marker analyses of Musa breeding populations

This study was conducted to compare different PCR-based marker systems (RAPD, VNTR and AFLP) for the analysis of breeding populations generated from two diverse Musa breeding schemes and detected a high level of polymorphism between parental genotypes and within progeny populations.

Homoeologous chromosome pairing between the A and B genomes of Musa spp. revealed by genomic in situ hybridization.

This method was applied to analyse chromosome pairing in metaphase from triploid interspecific cultivars, and it was clearly demonstrated that interspecific recombinations between M. acuminata and M. balbisiana chromosomes do occur and may be frequent in triploids hybrids.

Musa spp. germplasm management: microsatellite fingerprinting of USDA-ARS National Plant Germplasm System Collection

To estimate genetic diversity, identify gaps, determine integrity, and generate clonal reference multilocus DNA profiles for a total of 175 accessions in the TARS collection, a set of 22 microsatellite markers developed in the framework of the Generation Challenge Program were used.

Agronomic performance of two tetraploid hybrid plantains in Ghana.

Results showed that the IITA plantain hybrids were tolerant/resistant to the Black Sigatoka (Mycosphaerella fi jiensis) disease with high number of functional leaves at fl owering and at harvest.

Secondary polyploids, heterosis, and evolutionary crop breeding for further improvement of the plantain and banana (Musa spp. L) genome

A crop-breeding strategy which takes into consideration the process of domestication of banana and plantain is proposed, and current data suggest that this type of evolutionary breeding approach may be feasible in Musa.

Tolerance in banana to Fusarium wilt is associated with early up-regulation of cell wall-strengthening genes in the roots.

Quantitative RT-PCR was used to confirm up-regulation and differential expression of a number of genes throughout a time-course, following Foc infection in the tolerant GCTCV-218 when compared with susceptible cv.
