Somatic hybridization by protoplast fusion is used in breeding programs to obtain plant material that has inherited valuable traits from two different species, and in order to broaden plant genetic diversity. Somatic hybrids of the genus Gentiana could provide a useful source of new ornamental cultivars and of secondary metabolites. However, in order to evaluate its further usefulness, detailed characterization of the newly created hybrid is essential. Here, genome composition and stability of… CONTINUE READING
