A shoot regeneration system from leaves of lavandin (Lavandula×intermedia Emeric ex Loiseleur) was developed. The best results were obtained using a set of four different media. Callus was obtained on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium containing 9 μm 6-benzylaminopurine and 4.5 μm α-naphthaleneacetic acid. After 2 weeks of culture, calli were transferred onto(More)
Genetic transformation of peppermint is known to be very difficult essentially because of low efficiency regeneration. A regeneration protocol allowing 51% shooting frequency is proposed. Transient β-glucuronidase expression and adjustment of selection pressure with kanamycin are also reported. The final retained method to attempt peppermint transformation(More)

Pelargonium is one of the seven genera belonging to the Geraniaceae family, and includes almost 280 species mainly coming from South Africa. Some of these species have a strong rose scent mostly due to geraniol and citronellol. For a long time, hybrids between P. graveolens or P. radens and P. capitatum, have been used for essential oil (EO) production.(More)
