Selection inherent in monoploid derivation mechanisms for potato

Monoploid potato (2n=1×=12) can be derived either paternally through anther or microspore culture (androgenesis) or maternally through crossing with a haploid-inducing pollinator (gynogenesis). Androgenic and gynogenic monoploid populations, derived from each of two Solanum phureja clones, were compared in both greenhouse and field studies, and their… CONTINUE READING
