Process for the regeneration of Agave salmiana via indirect organogenesis
Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education, Nuevo Leon, Mexico
The invention is a process for generation of callus cells and generating plantlets from salmiana explants, in order to create a mass production of plants and provide a platform for future improvements on the molecular level.
Primary Application Area: Biotech & Biological Sciences
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 7
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: This technology describes a regeneration process as a useful tool to micropropagate agave plant with unique characteristics as to produce identical clones within lower time and more regenerated plants. Also it allows us to perform genetic improvement in callus cells in vitro to select the variants of agronomic interest.
