Minichromosomes offer an enormous potential for plant breeding and biotechnology, because they may simultaneously transfer and stably express multiple genes. Segregating independently of their host chromosomes, they provide a platform for accelerating plant breeding. Minichromosomes can be established from cloned components in vivo (bottom up) or via engineering of natural chromosomes (top down). When they possess functional centromeres and telomeres, they should be stably inherited, but theirdoi:10.1387/ijdb.130144ah pmid:24166447 fatcat:x3ovqdndbbejxb23rwphre4t44
