Abstract
Protoplast culture systems provide many unique opportunities for genetic manipulations, but in order to fully realise any unique characteristics arising from cell culture, it is essential to be able to regenerate plants from this material. This is particularly true for the potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) protoplast system where many soma clonal variations have been observed in plants regenerated from protoplasts (2, 9, 12). Therefore, much attention has been given to reproducibility and efficiency of shoot regeneration from protoplast calli (11, 16, 17).
