Title
Recently, it was demonstrated that Banana streak virus (BSV) sequences are integrated into the nuclear genome of #Musa balbisiana#. There is strong experimental evidence that some of these BSV integrated sequences, called BSV endogenous pararetroviru...
Background Sugarcane is the source of sugar in all tropical and subtropical countries and is becoming increasingly important for bio-based fuels. However, its large (10 Gb), polyploid, complex genome has hindered genome based breeding efforts. Here w...
Most banana cultivars are triploid seedless parthenocarpic clones derived from hybridization between Musa acuminata subspecies and sometimes M. balbisiana. M. acuminata subspecies were suggested to differ by a few large chromosomal rearrangements bas...
Edible bananas result from interspecific hybridization between Musa acuminata and Musa balbisiana, as well as among subspecies in M. acuminata. Four particular M. acuminata subspecies have been proposed as the main contributors of edible bananas, all...
Modern sugarcane (Saccharum spp.) is the leading sugar crop and a primary energy crop. It has the highest level of 'vertical' redundancy (2n = 12x = 120) of all polyploid plants studied to date. It was produced about a century ago through hybridizati...
We sequenced and assembled the draft genome of #Theobroma cacao#, an economically important tropical-fruit tree crop that is the source of chocolate. This assembly corresponds to 76% of the estimated genome size and contains almost all previously des...
Plant genomes are often characterized by a high level of repetitiveness and polyploid nature. Consequently, creating genome assemblies for plant genomes is challenging. The introduction of short-read technologies 10 years ago substantially increased ...
Barley (Hordeum vulgare) has played a pivotal role in Old World agriculture since its domestication about 10,000 yr ago1. Barley plants carrying loss-of-function alleles (mlo) of the Mlo locus are resistant against all known isolates of the widesprea...
Des clones cultivés de canne à sucre (Saccharum spp.) sont dérivés d'hybridation interspécifiques entre les espèces de S. officinarum et S. spontaneum. En utilisant la technique de l'hybridation in situ comparative de l'ADN génomique, nous avons démo...
