  • Patent number: 11447786
    Abstract: Plant cell fate and development is altered by treating cells with cellular reprogramming factors. Embryogenesis inducing morphogenic developmental genes are used as cellular reprogramming factors, specifically comprising polypeptides or polynucleotides encoding gene products for generating doubled haploids or haploid plants from gametes. Maize microspores treated by contacting the isolated cells with an exogenous purified, recombinant embryogenesis inducing morphogenic developmental gene polypeptide results in embryogenesis. The gametes of a maize plant develop into embryoids when transformed with a genetic construct including regulatory elements and structural genes capable of acting in a cascading fashion to alter cellular fate of plant cells. Developmental morphogenic proteins expressed from a genetic construct are used for ex situ treatment methods and for in planta cellular reprogramming.

  • Publication number: 20210285006
    Abstract: Automated, high-throughput and multiplexed methods for clonal plant production from maternal or paternal derived cellular structures including embryos and microspores, using morphogenic factors to produce plants are disclosed. Large scale and rapid clonal propagation methods facilitate increased efficiency in producing doubled haploid plants for breeding and for trait introgression purposes.
