Sago palm or its scientific name, Metroxylon sagu had been identified as the source of carbohydrates in Southeast Asia, especially in rural areas. Sago palm is being exploited mainly for their starch and was reported as the first palm used by man in South-East Asia and Oceania. This research aims to understand how non-trunking of M sagu occurred at molecular level. From the findings of this research, factors affecting the growth and development of a plant can be studied to improve the quality of crops in the future. This research study the methods to compare the previously identified genes of trunking and non-trunking of M sagu. Bioinformatics online databases were used in which the sequences were identified using pBLAST. Furthermore, pathways of the enzymes involved the previously identified genes were studied using KEGG. From the analysis using bioinformatics analysis, metabolic pathways were found out to be the pathways that governing the growth and development of M sagu, thus affecting the fonnation of its trunk.
