Bioversity International coordinates two global networks for banana research:
ProMusa is a platform for sharing news, knowledge and information on bananas via a website and biennial symposia organized in collaboration with the International Symposia for Horticultural Science (ISHS). You can also follow ProMusa on Twitter @Promusa_banana
MusaNet is a global collaborative network for Musa genetic resources and a partnership of all key stakeholders, aiming to ensure the long-term conservation on a cooperative basis, and facilitate the increased utilization of Musa genetic resources.
Bioversity International also provides coordination for banana research networks at the regional level in Latin America and the Caribbean, West and Central Africa, Eastern and Southern Africa, and the Asia-Pacific region.
