Haploids and doubled haploids are very important in plant breeding, enabling the time needed to produce homozygous lines to be shortened compared with conventional breeding. In the present review, emphasis is given to haploid induction through unfertilized ovule/ovary culture. Attention is given to induction of haploid plants from female gametophyte culture(More)
Allopolyploidization is considered an essential evolutionary process in plants that could trigger genomic shock in allopolyploid genome through activation of transcription of retrotransposons, which may be important in plant evolution. Two retrotransposon-based markers, inter-retrotransposon amplified polymorphism and retrotransposon-microsatellite(More)
