Protoplasts were isolated from embryogenic cell suspension cultures derived from proliferating shoot segments of a 20-year-old sandalwood tree (Santalum album Linn.). Under appropriate conditions, isolated protoplasts divided in liquid culture medium and produced embryogenic cell aggregates and globular embryos. Plating of cell aggregates on a fresh medium facilitated the differentiation of somatic emryos which further developed into plantlets.
