ICARDA doubled haploid wheat manual

The International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) has recently published “Methods and applications of doubled haploid technology in wheat breeding”, by W. Tadesse, S. Tawkaz, M.N. Inagaki, E. Picard and M. Baum. Doubled haploids are genotypes produced through induction of haploids followed by chromosome doubling. Wheat cultivars produced using doubled haploid systems have been released for cultivation in both developed and developing countries. This 25-page manual aims to be a useful guide for wheat breeders, geneticists, biotechnologists, students and technicians. See or contact for more information.
