Plant Cell Culture Technology in Relation to Plant Breeding

  • Sherret S. Chase
Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series (BLSC, volume 22)


Based upon results realized to date, in research laboratories worldwide, one can predict that means will exist in the near future to set plant breeders free from the historic constraints of season and time, syngamy and meiosis; that is, from the constraints of working within normal sexual cycles, maturation periods and ecological restrictions. The range of relatedness with which plant breeders can work in hybridization and segregation will be widened. The possibilities of inserting genetic material from any species into eukaryotic plant cells will be realized. It will become feasible to further control such foreign deoxyribonucleic acid and its expression in ways appropriate to the plant breeder’s requirements and the host genome.
