  Abstract:  Applications of Somatic Embryogenesis. The manipulation of plant cell and tissue cultures to produce somatic embryos efficiently is one of the keystones of the new technologies that will greatly change the way crops are planted (as synthetic seeds) and genetically altered in the future. Gene transfer into embryogenic plant cells is already challenging conventional plant breeding, and has become an indispensable tool for crop improvement. Genetic transformation of somatic embryos, large-scale production of somatic embryos in bioreactors, mass propagation, synthetic seed and fluid drilling and cryopreservation of somatic embryos are some of the applications which have attracted much attention. These recent developments are summarised in this review.
