Genetically Engineered Banana with Resistance to Banana Bunchy Top Virus
Researchers have developed transgenic banana of the cultivar Dwarf Brazilian that have been engineered to contain altered transgene sequences from the genome of Banana Bunchy Top Virus (BBTV). These transgenic banana plants are resistant to infection by BBTV and do not develop symptoms of banana bunchy top disease after exposure to BBTV. These plan...
