In order to efficiently complement traditional wheat breeding with genetic transformation technology it will be desirable to introduce transgenes into the ideal genetic background. Poor tissue culture performance is limiting the number of wheat genotypes that can be stably transformed. We statistically analysed the tissue culture response of 38 current European winter wheats and discuss genetic factors influencing this trait. Although regenerable callus cultures could be initiated from immature… CONTINUE READING
