Abstract

Somatic embryos of sandalwood (Santalum album) were encapsulated in an alginate matrix to prepare ‘Synthetic seeds’. Encapsulated single embryos germinated to form plants with roots and shoots. Embryogenic cell suspensions encapsulated and stored at 4°C for 45 days produced embryos when recultured as suspensions.
