DescriptionA somatic embryogenesis protocol for plant regeneration of northern red oak (Quercus rubra) was established from immature cotyledon explants. Embryogenic callus cultures were induced on Murashige and Skoog medium (MS) containing 3% sucrose, 0.24% Phytagel, and various concentrations of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) after 4 weeks of culture in darkness.
