The banana genome hub: a community database for genomics in the Musaceae

MetadataShow full item record
The Banana Genome Hub provides centralized access for genome assemblies, annotations, and the extensive related omics resources available for bananas and banana relatives. A series of tools and unique interfaces are implemented to harness the potential of genomics in bananas, leveraging the power of comparative analysis, while recognizing the differences between datasets. Besides effective genomic tools like BLAST and the JBrowse genome browser, additional interfaces enable advanced gene search and gene family analyses including multiple alignments and phylogenies. A synteny viewer enables the comparison of genome structures between chromosome-scale assemblies. Interfaces for differential expression analyses, metabolic pathways and GO enrichment were also added. A catalogue of variants spanning the banana diversity is made available for exploration, filtering, and export to a wide variety of software. Furthermore, we implemented new ways to graphically explore gene presence-absence in pangenomes as well as genome ancestry mosaics for cultivated bananas. Besides, to guide the community in future sequencing efforts, we provide recommendations for nomenclature of locus tags and a curated list of public genomic resources (assemblies, resequencing, high density genotyping) and upcoming resources—planned, ongoing or not yet public. The Banana Genome Hub aims at supporting the banana scientific community for basic, translational, and applied research and can be accessed at https://banana-genome-hub.southgreen.fr.
