Protoplast fusion in chrysanthemum: a platform technology for innovative breeding

The aim is to develop platform technology for symmetric and asymmetric protoplast fusion in chrysanthemum. After designing basic protocols, the technology will be transferred to the R&D SMEs and demonstrated in pilot cases. Unique cultivars in both cut and pot chrysanthemums will be created with specific traits (flower colors and shapes) that are nearly impossible to achieve using traditional crossbreeding.
