Table 1. Effect of genotype on the average number of shoots and leaves induced from embryogenic axesofcommon bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) regardless of the BAP and AS concentration. Data were recorded after 30 days of culture on induction medium supplemented with different BAP and AS concentrations.
