Plantains are important staples in sub-Saharan Africa, however, production has been saddled by several constraints including pests and diseases and lack of improved technologies. In regard to genetic study, morphological characterization has identified about 100 local accessions to exist in Ghana. However, limited molecular characterization has been done on plantains. Characterization based on morphologic characteristics alone may be limited since expression of quantitative traits is subjective to strong environmental influence. Alternatively, molecular characterization techniques are capable of identifying... Read more.
