Project: Use of fluorescent techniques for cytogenetic characterization of Araceae somatic hybridization products
- project duration
- 01-FEB-09 – 31-JUL-12
- The aim is to create asymmetric somatic hybrids within the Araceae family, and to visualize (partial) chromosome transfer of the donor to the acceptor genome. Genome fragmentation will be induced through microprotoplasts isolation or UV-irradiation and fusion will ne performed either chemically or electrically. A proper GISH protocol will be designed for cytogenetic testing of the obtained hybrids.
