Musa acuminata Colla (AA genomes) and Musa balbisiana Colla (BB genomes) are the wild progenitors of the cultivated banana, they are highly variable in Thailand. The genetic system is relatively unknown and complicated due to interspecific hybridization, heterozygosity and polyploidy, which are common in most clones. These factors make identification of closely related banana cultivars difficult, especially when sterile. The high annealing temperature-random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD… CONTINUE READING
