Improvement of the banana "Musa acuminata" reference sequence using NGS data and semi-automated bioinformatics methods. uri icon

abstract

  • Recent advances in genomics indicate functional significance of a majority of genome sequences and their long range interactions. As a detailed examination of genome organization and function requires very high quality genome sequence, the objective of this study was to improve reference genome assembly of banana (Musa acuminata)
