Lily breeding by using molecular tools and transformation systems

Mol Biol Rep. 2014 Oct;41(10):6899-908. doi: 10.1007/s11033-014-3576-9. Epub 2014 Jul 19.


In our review, we highlighted the progresses made in molecular breeding of lily's flowering, including the ABCDE models, the gene cloning, the establishment of regeneration system, the gene transformation methods, the transgene technology application in lily. Meanwhile, questions that were met at present in molecular breeding in flowering of lily were underlined, and we provide viable solutions. Although many researches on lily literature had been published in the world, in our review, we provided a valuable and unique resource and spring-board from which to understand or further study the molecular breeding in flowering of lily.
