Induced mutagenesis in microbulbs of Allium sativum L.

A protocol for induced mutagenesis in clone Boconó (Allium sativum) microbulb cultured in vitro was established. For this, two assays were realized: test or radio sensitivity assays were performed to determine the appropriate gamma radiation dose and test or mutagenesis assays to determine the...
