Abstract

In this study, researchers report a protocol for micropropagating Schizachyrium scoparium plants. Cell cultures were started from embryogenic culture. "Pro-embryos" were "matured" on semi-solid medium and eventually produced shoots. Plantlets were successfully acclimatized in a greenhouse and outdoors.
