Figure 2. In vitro culture of oil palm immature embryo (IE) leading to plant regeneration via callus stage.
a) Freshly extracted IE on callusing media (N62.5 or N6FET).
b) An IE undergoing expansion after 3 days on callusing media (N6FET).
c-d) Callusing IE after 4 weeks on callusing media (N62.5).
e-g) Somatic embryos developing on embryogenic callus derived from IE after 8 weeks on N6FET.
h-i) Distinct torpedo-shaped somatic embryos developing from embryogenic callus following transfer onto N6O.
j) Plantlet obtained from germinated somatic embryos on N6O.
