Quick Reference

The appearance of new traits in plants that regenerate from a callus in tissue culture. Some of the variations represent single nucleotide changes; others involve chromosomal translocations, losses, or duplications. Much of the variation occurs during tissue culture, rather than as a result of unmasking the variation present in the parent plant. See gametoclonal variation.
