Abstract

The formation of whole plants from cultured cells is interesting not only because of its applications for mass propagation but also as a prime example of the process of controlled development and differentiation in plants. Cultures capable of producing somatic embryos with high frequency provide ideal experimental systems to study and understand the biochemical basis of hormonal regulation of the developmental process. This knowledge should lead to the planning of media and various treatments that allow us to obtain whole plants from single cells in recalcitrant plant species.
