The article presents information on a study which examines the genetic factors affecting in vitro plant regeneration in tomato. It is said that biotechnological breeding approaches depend on regeneration abilities of plants. In the discussed study, two gene mapping populations were developed from a tomato cultivar with low regeneration ability and a high regeneration accession of the wild species Solanum pennellii.
