Fidélité des clones de plants d'Iris pumila régénérés suite à la cryoconservation par vitrification.

Clonal fidelity of Iris pumila plants regenerated after cryopreservation by vitrification.



This book represents 54 contributions, oral as well as posters, of the final meeting of COST Action 871, CryoPlanet, held in Angers, France. Twenty-one COST Action Countries and 3 non-COST institutes participated actively in this initiative. The Action was created because plant cryobiologists realized that plant cryopreservation was hardly applied in Europe. This was mainly due to the fact that efficient and robust cryopreservation protocols applicable to many plant species and diverse germplasm types were not available, plant researchers were unacquainted to recent developments in cryogenic storage methods and there was a lack of coordinated research in Europe on plant cryopreservation. The main objective of this action was therefore “to improve and apply technologically advanced techniques for plant genetic resources conservation of crops that are grown/ and or conserved in Europe with main emphasis on long-term conservation through cryopreservation”. In order to achieve this, 2 working groups (WGs) were established.
This special issue is divided in 3 parts; one devoted to WG1 topics “fundamental aspects of cryopreservation/cryoprotection and genetic stability”; one devoted to WG2 topics “technology, application and validation of plant cryopreservation” and a last one with country reports with most important activities on plant cryopreservation that took place during the running of this action.
