Abstract

MicroRNAs refer to a class of short noncoding RNAs (containing about 22 to 24 nucleotides) widely found in eukaryotes, which function in post-transcriptional regulation of target gene expression via base pairing with specified sequences within target mRNAs to cleave target mRNAs or to repress their translation. This paper mainly introduces the research progress of banana miRNA in biological study of resistance to Fusarium wilt by means of bioinformatics, hoping to develop miRNA application in resistance to F. wilt of banana.

 

Key words: Plant miRNA, target gene, bananas.
