Somaclonal variations (SV) are genetic or epigenetic changes induced in plant cell and tissue culture. Induction of somaclonal variation, is an alternate approach to conventional breeding and transgenic approaches to introduce desirable genetic variability in the gene pool. SVs that occur spontaneously in culture induce changes in a range of plant characters. However, the probability of improving a key agronomic trait such as disease resistance can be cumbersome when left to chance alone. Thedoi:10.14719/pst.2018.5.2.382 fatcat:ybqfw5q4pnapvp22jpbnhojavy
