Additional file 1: Table S1:

Musa accessions from the ex situ collection of ‘Embrapa Mandioca Fruticultura’ Center (Cruz das Almas, Brazil) with original provenance and information on ploidy and genomic composition derived from morphological characterization or information from origin (passport data). Table S2. Loci used for the characterization of the ex situ Musa collection from ‘Embrapa Mandioca Fruticultura’ Center, containing a tail for fluorescent labeling, with number of observed alleles (Na), Polymorphic Information Content (PIC), Marker Index (MI). Underlined regions refer to tail used to label products with fluorescence FAM, HEX, or NED. Figure S1. Mean observed heterozigosity (Ho) and Polymorphic Information Content (PIC) for all microsatellite loci. C: cultivated; W: wild. Figure S2. Histogram representing the proportion (Y-axis) of dissimilarity (X-axis) between pairs of accessions, for all accessions (General) and main genomic groups.
