 Abstract—An efficient and reproducible protocol has been established through the technique of forced axillary branching for the propagation of an important edible bamboo species namely Bambusa bambos. High frequency multiple shoot induction was achieved from nodal segments collected from elite genotype on Murashige and Skoog’s (MS) medium supplemented with 4.4 µM Benzylaminopurine (BAP) and 1.16 µM Kinetin (Kn). The size of explant and season greatly influenced the frequency of bud break…

Development of efficient micropropagation protocol through axillary shoot proliferation for Bambusa vulgaris ‘wamin’ and Bambusa bambos and assessment of clonal fidelity of the micropropagated plants through Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA markers

The clonal fidelity of in vitro regenerated plantlets was assessed using 10 random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers and all the bands generated using the 10 RAPD decamers were monomorphic and produced more than six scorable bands within the band size of 240–2,505 base pairs.
