Somaclonal variation is the variation among plants regenerated from cell and tissue culture (microculture). A somaclonal research program within the USDA-Forest Service, the North Central Forest Experiment Station Biotechnology Program, is described as a prototype. Initial targets include glyphosate resistance in poplars, hexazinone resistance in jack pine, Septoria resistance in poplars, and genetic guidelines for regenerating whole trees of poplars and jack pine from microculture. Protoplast, callus, and organ culture are being used.
