o Title of the thesis : Tissue culture studies and Interspecific hybridization in the genus Nicotiana
I took tobacco for study . I performed a cross betweenone species of Nicotiana reported resistant to the species of the root knot nematode Melodiogyne javanica. [login to view URL] and M. incognita. and the genotypes of Nicotiana tabacum. Seed obtained were unable to sprout normally or on100 ppm Gibberllic acid solution. I adopted tissue culture methods and the hybrids obtained possesed the intermediate characters between the two parents. The hybrid nature was confirmed morphologically, biochemically and cytogenetically.I have also done molecular studies.
