AcronymEMBRYOBAG

Proposal titleThe Development of a Culture Bag to Simplify Somatic Embryogenesis

AbstractSomatic embryogenesis is theoretically, the system of choice for the propagation of the

breeding crops with elite characteristics, such as oak. Asynchronosity of the

developmental stages prevents automation of the process, hence the media changes are

highly labourious. The objective of the project is to develop a sealed bag where these media

changes are achieved by osmosis. The project will develop a suitable bag for somatic

embryogenesis of juvenile, and  later mature oak tissue allong with a protocol for

automating the process. The lowcost of the process will allow Commercialisation of

somatic embryogenesis even  where there is poor synchronosity. The success of the

system, will allow the production of low cost, elite forest trees of high yield and quality.
