IHC 2014 – Symposium ProMusa ‘Révéler le potentiel génomique de la banane’

La séquence du génome du bananier, récemment décrypté, donne accès à plus de 36 000 gènes de la plante, ce qui permet d’identifier les gènes responsables de caractères particuliers, tels que la résistance aux maladies, le nanisme, la qualité des fruits et bien d’autres, et d’ouvrir de nombreuses opportunités nouvelles et passionnantes. L’objectif du symposium […]

RTB partners on alert over the spread of Banana Bunchy Top Disease in Sub-Saharan Africa

Banana Bunchy Top Disease (BBTD) of plantains and bananas is caused by a destructive virus which is very difficult to eradicate. While it has already been detected in at least 14 African countries, its impact in the affected regions is drastic: diseased plants are severely stunted and do not produce fruits. Considering the urgent need […]
