Cryopreservation of Plant Materials - A Review
Author(s): R Kalaiselvi, M Rajasekar and S Gomathi
Establishment of new plant varieties is getting important due to tremendous increase in population and changes in the human food behaviors. This leads towards the demand of new techniques and varieties in plant productions. Therefore some of the wild species and some other important plants species are in the extinction condition. Germplasm conservation of some of the important species is essential. Cryopreservation is a technique, which is used to preserve the reservoirs of genetic materials of plants by ultra low temperature. During the cryopreservation all biochemical activities significantly reduced and biological deterioration are stopped. The preserved materials can be used after many years. This review details the cryopreservation of plant genetic materials.
