This list is intended to provide a forum where scientists can discuss issues relating to IUFRO Working Party 2.09.02 - Somatic embryogenesis and other vegetative propagation technologies.
The main objective of this Unit is to foster the development and application of somatic embryogenesis (SE) technology in both coniferous and hardwood tree species. Research areas of this unit include: the development and refinement of the SE system for commercially and ecologically important tree species; the application of SE in tree breeding and vegetative deployment in multi-varietal forestry balancing genetic gain and diversity; the use of SE in genetic resource conservation, biotechnology, genomics, molecular biology, and insect and disease resistance; and the study of related disciplines such as cryopreservation and using molecular makers for examining genetic stability and integrity of SE produced plants.
The mailing list service is free to use for all IUFRO members, however, you will need to subscribe in order to post and reply to messages.
