Musa schizocarpa (2n=22) is a wild species of banana native from south-east Asia. The genetic signature of the species has been found in some banana cultivars
The genome sequence was obtained using Nanopore and optical mapping technologies leading to a chromosome-scale assembly that exhibited high contig N50s (>5 Mb). A total of 32 809 protein coding genes were predicted.
The genome was published in the following
