Cryopreservation is a reliable means for the long-term conservation of plant genetic resources. It is of particular interest for cocoa (Theobroma cacao L.) whose seeds are recalcitrant to conventional storage methods and field collections susceptible to disease infestations. However, the encapsulationdehydration procedure previously developed for cocoa somatic embryos has resulted in poor survival after retrieval from liquid nitrogen. To examine the causes of such failure, cocoa somatic embryos… Expand
