Biotechnological approaches to rose breeding
Marchant, Robert (1994) Biotechnological approaches to rose breeding. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The production of new rose cultivars by sexual crossing is problematic and time consuming due to sexual incompatibility. the failure of seeds to genninate. and to a limited gene pool. Biotechnology provides an obvious alternative for the creation of genetic novelty in rose. This thesis focuses on the development of novel approaches, based on embryo rescue, pollen cryopreservation, protoplast and transformation technologies.
