Name of project:The use of biotechnology methods for the preservation and reproduction of autochtonous populations of hurst ecotype of Norway spruces
Year:2008 - 2012

Description of project

A method of somatic embryogenesis will be used for the reproduction and preservation of autochthonous population of hurst ecotype of Norway spruce. The embryogenic lines will be characterized by the means of DNA analyses. The role of polyamines in morphogenic processes will be studied in the course of somatic embryo development. The obtained results will be generalized and used for the clonal reproduction of valuable populations of Norway spruce.
