Chromosomal and mutagenic study of the marine macroalga, Gracilaria tenuistipitata

A pressing need of algal aquaculture is the availability of strains with favourable characteristics. Since this goal cannot be achieved easily by traditional breeding methods for Gracilaria tenuistipitata, we developed mutagenesis and selection procedures that bypass the necessity for protoplast isolation and cultivation. A haploid gametophyte was… CONTINUE READING
