Abstract

Garlic (Allium sativum L.) is cultivated by extensive vegetative propagation, which may lead to germplasm degradation, the accumulation of various viruses, a low propagation coefficient, and high production costs. Tissue culture is the most effective method for the rapid propagation and germplasm...

Abstract

In vitro clonal propagation of small fruit species has been one of the most broadly exploited approaches in biotechnology. However, the most critical aspect of this propagation technology has been the maintenance of genetic fidelity of tissue culture-raised plants. In the present study, three...

Abstract

Three factors including Agrobacterium rhizogenes strains (A4, A7 and ATCC15834), genotypes (Gorgan and Ramhormoz) and explant types (stem disc meristem, shoot apical meristem and root apical meristem) were conducted to study the effects on hairy root induction of garlic. Our results showed that A....

CAB ReviewFull Text

Banana and plantain are important fruit crops grown in the tropical and subtropical regions of the world. Millions of resource-poor people depend on them for their livelihood and food security. These fruit crops are destroyed by several viral diseases causing serious economic losses wherever the...

CAB ReviewFull Text

The developmental pathway leading to plant somatic embryogenesis (SE) is true demonstration of totipotency of plant cells. During this process, somatic cells, under appropriate conditions, divide and differentiate into embryos. This developmental pathway plays an important role as an efficient...

CAB ReviewFull Text

A mutation is a sudden heritable change in the DNA in a living cell, not caused by genetic segregation or genetic recombination. Mutation breeding is the purposeful application of mutations in plant breeding. Unlike hybridization and selection, mutation breeding has the advantage of improving a...

AbstractFull Text

Yerba mate (Ilex paraguariensis A. St.-Hil.) is a species of great social and cultural importance in Uruguay, with outstanding medicinal properties. Although there are no commercial plantations in Uruguay, there are natural populations that represent a reservoir of genetic diversity for the...
