ISHS/ProMusa symposium: Unravelling the banana’s genomic potential
Brisbane, Australia / 17-22 August 2014

This symposium will take stock of ongoing research efforts with the impact of the recently sequenced genome, and how this has influenced various areas of banana research since, taking centre stage. Special attention will be given to Fusarium wilt tropical race 4, which is already a major problem in Asia and poses a huge threat for banana production in Africa and Latin America. The contribution of banana to human health and nutrition will also be highlighted, with a special focus on Pacific bananas.
