Abstract

Compares the genetic similarity of micropropagated Echinacea purpurea plants to their donor plant. The study uses morphological characteristics and amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) analysis. The majority of plants were normal while a small minority were aberrant. The aberrant regenerants were found to be off-types.
