Title: Studies on Regeneration and Genetic Transformation in Jatropha curcas
Authors: Kumar, Nitish
Keywords: Jatropha curcas
Issue Date: 15-Oct-2011
Abstract: J.curcas is one of the most important plant species of the world valued for its biofuel property, belongs to the family Euphorbiaceae. The species is primarily propagated through seeds, and thus the seed yield and oil content varies significantly. Propagation can also be carried out without losing the traits by stem cutting but the limitation is generation of large scale quality planting material. Thus, conventional propagation through seeds is not reliable and vegetative cuttings are inadequate to meet the demand of large scale quality planting material. Therefore, Jatropha improvement programme by modern methods of agrobiotechnology are of interest worldwide. Camara Machado has reported that regeneration in J. curcas is highly genotype dependent. Concerted efforts are being made to optimize genotype independent regeneration and genetic transformation protocol.
