Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) is an important vegetable and staple crop worldwide and mainly propagated vegetatively. Breeding of potato is problematic and therefore induced mutation is an attractive means of improving the crop. In vitro culture systems, and especially the production of micro-tubers, are ideal for such purposes in potato improvement. Radio-sensitivity testing (growth reduction, GR and lethal dose, LD) allows the determination of irradiation treatments (Gy) for mutation… Expand
Assessment of the Ploidy Level Diversity by Chloroplast Counts in Stomatal Guard Cells of Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) Mutants
TLDR
This study shows that mutation induction generates genetic variations from which desired mutants may be selected based on the appropriate breeding strategies, and indicates that the number of ploidy level distribution was decreasing in diploidy and triploids and were increasing in tetraploids in all the potato mutant populations. Expand
Application of Gamma Induced Mutation in Breeding Potato for Bacterial Wilt Disease Resistance
TLDR
The reaction of potato mutants to bacterial wilt varied from variety to variety and mutants to mutants, and none of the Asante, Mpya and Sherekea mutants used was found to be resistant toacterial wilt though Asante mutant populations showed better response. Expand

Genetic improvement of potato microtuber production in vitro by gamma irradiation
TLDR
This study was aimed at producing virus free microtubers in vitro, to investigate the stimulating effects of low doses of gamma irradiation on microtuber mean number, mean fresh weight and size. Expand
Induction of salt-tolerant potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) mutants with gamma irradiation and characterization of genetic variations via RAPD-PCR analysis
TLDR
Salt-tolerant mutants of potato (Solanum tuberosum L. 'Marfona') were obtained via gamma irradiation and the M1V2 and M2V3 clonal generations were developed, and related dendrograms were produced. Expand
In-vitro Techniques and Mutagenesis for the Improvement of Vegetatively Propagated Plants
TLDR
A number of important crops such as banana, plantain, date palm, citrus, potato, sweet potato, pineapple, apple, and pear are propagated from vegetative parts, and are not amenable to improvement in the same manner as sexually propagated plants, so mutation induction offers the possibility to alter a few characters without disrupting the genome.

Optimizing TILLING and Ecotilling techniques for potato (Solanum tuberosum L)
TLDR
This work shows the utility of enzymatic mismatch cleavage for TILLING and Ecotilling in different varieties of potato, which allows for rapid germplasm characterization without the cost and high informatics load of DNA sequencing. Expand
Induced mutations – A new paradigm in plant breeding
TLDR
The identification and analysis of mutants by using molecular techniques of DNA fingerprinting and mapping with PCR based markers, such as RAPDs, AFLP and STMS, and mutant tagging shall bring a new dimension in gene technology. Expand
Manipulation of microtubers for direct field utilization in seed production
TLDR
A further refinement of the production and handling methods is required before microtubers can be recommended for field production of seed tubers, as gibberellic acid (GA3) was more effective than Rindite in greenhouse studies. Expand
In vitro tuberization in potato (Solanum tuberosum L.)
TLDR
In vitro microtuber formation potentiality of potato was investigated to establish a rapid disease free seed production system in potato and MS + 6% sucrose + 4 mg/L KIN combination of treatment was best for in vitro tuberization among the parameters under study. Expand
"In vitro" Induction, Isolation, and Selection of Potato Mutants Tolerant to Salinity
TLDR
A mutation breeding program was conducted to improve potato tolerance to salinity by irradiating Draga, Diamant, and Spunta with gamma ray doses and then propagating plantlets to obtain enough explants for in vitro selection of plants tolerant toSalinity. Expand
Stability of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) plants regenerated via somatic embryos, axillary bud proliferated shoots, microtubers and true potato seeds: a comparative phenotypic, cytogenetic and molecular assessment
TLDR
A very low level of AFLP marker profile variation was seen amongst the somatic embryo and microtuber derived plants, and is discussed in the context of possible methylation changes occurring during the process of somatic embryogenesis. Expand
The development of new genotypes of the white yam by mutation induction using yam mini-tubers.
TLDR
Investigation of irradiating minitubers of the yam with Gamma-rays found that increasing doses of Gamma-ray irradiation progressively inhibited sprouting of setts isolated from treated mini-tubers, which was relevant, as one of the genetic improvement objectives apart from high tuber yields in yam, is the development of lines that may be cropped without staking.
