Explants used for cryopreservation of banana (Musa L. spp.) are mainly sourced from tissue culture. Here, we demonstrate the successful use of sucker meristems (SM) obtained from field-raised plants for cryopreservation of Indian Musa ABB cv. ‘Karpura Chakkarakeli’. In addition, the genetic stability of plants recovered from cryopreserved and regenerated meristems after hardening and transfer to field conditions was studied using 11 phenotypic (biometric) characters and 21 simple sequence… CONTINUE READING
