Hybrid Potato Seeds

Prof. Emeritus Esra Galun
Prof. Emeritus Esra Galun developed a method for transferring intracellular organelles (mitochondria or chloroplasts) from a donor plant cell to a recipient plant. The method produced hybrid plants and later hybrid seeds of potatoes. These seeds do not pass on most viral diseases between generations of potato plants.


The method helps farmers around the world, particularly in developing countries.
