Journal Highlights

Physiological and Biochemical Features of Embryogenic and Non-embryogenic Peach Palm (Bactris gasipaes Kunth) Cultures Plant somatic cells are highly plastic under the adequate culturing conditions; they can change their epigenetic, genetic, biochemical, and hormonal profiles to undergo dedifferentiation into an embryogenic state. These embryogenic cells can be induced to reenter the cell cycle and develop into somatic embryos, which can then be germinated, rooted, acclimated, and transferred to the field like any plant from a zygotic embryo. However, multiple types of tissue can be cultivated in vitro under the exact same culture conditions, and, indeed, from the exact same...
