The needs of a growing human population require rapid and efficient development of improved cultivars by plant breeders. The doubled haploid (DH) technology enables generating completely homozygous lines in a single step and, thus, is central to modern genetics and breeding approaches. Rapid and reliable identification of seeds with a haploid embryo after in vivo haploid induction is elementary in the method utilized in maize but current systems have severe shortcomings preventing their use in… CONTINUE READING
