Production of doubled haploids for plant breeding

Fig para Serv DH 04 ENG

In the Service of Doubled Haploids for Plant Breeding we offer the possibility of producing doubled haploid pure lines in species of agronomic interest, on an on-demand basis. Doubled haploid individuals make possible to obtain pure lines in a single in vitro generation, greatly reducing the time and significantly lowering costs traditionally associated to the generation of such pure lines. Once obtained, we analyze the doubled haploid individuals by flow cytometry and molecular markers, thus certifying their gametophytic (haploid) origin. We also offer the possibility to:

- Improve and/or adapt protocols for obtaining doubled haploid individuals to specific varieties/genotypes of interest.

- Develop new protocols to obtain double haploids in new species of interest.
