Application of somatic embryogenesis in high-value clonal forestry: Deployment, genetic control, and stability of cryopreserved clones


The most important advantage of cloning conifers by somatic embryogenesis (SE) is that the embryogenic tissue can be cryopreserved without changing its genetic make-up and without loss of juvenility. This offers an opportunity to develop high-value clonal varieties by defrosting and repropagating cryopreserved clones after genetic testing has shown which… (More)
