Turkish Cyclamen sps.
Cyclamen species is one of the most important ornamental plants worldwide as indoor and outdoor production. Somatic embryogenesis is important tools in breeding and mass propagation. This chapter is overview of the somatic embryogenesis techniques available for the micropropagation of wild cyclamen species. Protocols for regeneration in vitro through callus culture and somatic embryos/embryo like structures are obtained from different explant types and optimized results are highlighted.
We would like to thanks to Dr. Jaime A. Teixeira da Silva (Kagawa University) for supporting us our biotechnology knowledge in cyclamen. We thank also to Dr. Pembe Çürük to help us improving our knowledge on endemic cyclamen species. This research was supported by TUBITAK (The Scientific and Technical Research Council of Turkey) (Project No. TOVAG 110O102) project.
