IN-VITRO TECHNIQUES - PROPAGATION AND LONG TERM STORAGE. PROCEEDINGS OF A SEMINAR HELD AT BRAUNSCHWEIG (D) ON NOVEMBER 27-29, 1984.
This book contains the proceedings of a seminar in the CEC Programme of Coordination of Research on Plant Productivity, held at Braunschweig, 27-29 November, 1984. Contributed are 21 papers in 4 sessions; and 5 posters added. In session I: "in vitro propagation", the contributions are concerned with: micropropagation of ornamental plants, propagation of some vegetable species, lupins, fruit trees, new apple genotypes, and clonal propagation of forest tree species. Session II: "in vitro propagation: special aspects + organogenesis" contained papers on: an organogenic system in populus plants; in vivo rooting of in vitro propagated shoots; selecting Phoma lingam resistant cell lines; use of meristem tip culture for elimination of RRSV in red currant; host parasite interaction in tomato and carnation. In session III: "in vitro propagation: embryogenesis and genetic aspects" contributions focused on: regeneration of protoplasts, regeneration by somatic embryogenesis; genetic, epigenetic and non-genetic variation in tissue culture derived plants; organogenesis and somatic embryogenesis in callus culture (improvement of cherry trees); genetic manipulation of cereals. In section IV: "in vitro long term storage" was discussed for: in vitro cultures; old potatoe varieties; potatoe meristems (cryopreservation); chrysanthemum breeding and propagation; fruit trees (germplasm preservation technique).
