This paper reviews investigations into the application of protoplast fusion to the genetic and agronomic improvement of potato. Fusion studies involving Solanum tuberosum are reviewed under the categories of: fusion with wild relatives, dihaploid fusion and asymmetric strategies. The selection and characterisation of putative somatic hybrid material is(More)
Adaptation of protoplast regeneration systems for use on untested or recalcitrant potato genotypes can be a time-consuming exercise. Callus growth and xylogenesis were evaluated as early correlates of shooting potential to shorten this process. Callus growth was of limited value for predicting organogenesis but a linear relationship was observed between(More)

The report tested the assertion that U.S. security cooperation (SC) can help reduce fragility in partner states. Based on an analysis of SC data and state fragility scores for 107 countries in 1991–2008, the study found a correlation between provision of SC by the United States and a reduction in partner state fragility, though the presence and degree of(More)
