Mutation induction and tissue culture in improving fruits

  title={Mutation induction and tissue culture in improving fruits},
  author={Stefano Predieri},
  journal={Plant Cell, Tissue and Organ Culture},
This review describes in vitro mutation induction methods in fruits and the in vitro selection procedures available for early screening. Results obtained through in vitro mutation techniques, including somaclonal variation, are reviewed and compared with the current achievements and future prospects of transgenic breeding. Plant improvement based on mutations, which change one or a few specific traits of a cultivar, can contribute to fruit improvement without altering the requirements of fruit… CONTINUE READING
