Isolated microspore culture techniques are being widely used in Brassica breeding programs to generate haploid and doubled haploid plants. A number of factors influence regeneration response in vitro including genotype. In order to assess the effect of genotype on microspore embryogenesis in B. rapa L. var. oleifera, 17 cultivars and breeding lines were evaluated. Embryos developed from all but one genotype when using NLN medium with 17% sucrose, followed by a reduction in sucrose concentration… CONTINUE READING
