Somatic embryogenesis for scaling up the propagation of genetic resources
Collection of mature somatic embryos, germination and growth of emblings (maritime pine).
Somatic embryogenesis is a powerful tool for efficient multiplication of each individual, seed-enclosed zygotic embryo. The technique offers high prospects for industriel application of clonal propagation systems. XYLOBIOTECH provides lab and greenhouse facilities for developing somatic embryogenesis, especially in conifers.
