The aim of this work was to obtain a series of genetically related lines of Eragrostis curvula with different ploidy levels and reproductive modes, which can be used for the discovery of genes associated to diplospory. E. curvula is a widely cultivated forage grass native to Southern Africa that reproduces naturally by obligate diplosporous apomixis (asexual reproduction by seeds) of the Antennaria type. In vitro culture of immature inflorescences of the apomictic cultivar Tanganyika led to the… CONTINUE READING
