Extending the variability of cultivated plants by exploiting somaclonal variation

Extending the variability of cultivated plants by exploiting somaclonal variation

Bulletin des Recherches Agronomiques de Gembloux 19(1/2): 61-80

A review of somaclonal variation is presented in sections covering (1) its definition and history, (2) its potential, (3) methods of producing somaclonal variants, (4) selection of somaclonal variants, (5) analysis of the genotype of somaclonal variants, (6) origin of somaclonal variation and (7) somaclonal variation, repetitive DNA and transposons.
