Cover for Determination of the optimal conditions for mutagenesis induction in a commercial Arabica coffee variety.

Low genetic diversity and autogamous reproduction limit genetic improvement of Coffea arabica L. As a consequence, susceptibility to biotic and abiotic stresses increases. Induced mutagenesis is an alternative strategy for increasing genetic variability and for the development of varieties tolerant ...
