Many modern biotechnological tools in plant breeding, e.g. interspecific hybridization, microsporogenesis, ploidy alterations, genetic modification and genome editing, rely on the ability to produce an entire plant from a single, improved cell. Hence, regeneration is key to a broad application of these technologies in a wide range of crops and for a wide range of goals, not in the least for circular agriculture.
This project tackles regeneration in a multi-faceted approach comprised in two work packages, using biochemistry and molecular genetics as instruments.
