Cell Biology

Modern cell technologies lead to a quicker multiplication of donor plants and ensure uniformity in plant reproduction through regeneration from a single cell into a whole plant again.

This helps us to save time in developing improved varieties.

Another common application of this technology is culturing plant reproductive organs. The result is a plant with half the normal number of chromosomes. This haploid plant can be lead to double its chromosome complement. The final product of this work is a 'doubled- haploid', a truly homozygous individual. This technique is a time-saving alternative to repeated selfing for the creation of inbred lines.
