Banana genetic resources
MusaNet is a global network of stakeholders striving to ensure the long-term conservation and utilization of Musa genetic resources. It provides a collaborative framework for the implementation of the Global Strategy for the Conservation and Use of Musa Genetic Resources1 , which was released in 2016 and replaced the 2006 consultative document2 .
The network is coordinated by Bioversity International.
The structure of MusaNet consists of a Coordinating Secretariat, an Expert Committee (in which ProMusa and the regional banana networks are represented) and five Thematic Groups (Diversity; Evaluation; Information and Documentation; Conservation and Genomics)3 .
A Taxonomic Advisory Group, composed of 12 experts with expertise across the range of Musa diversity, provides technical advice4 .
