Mutation induction

It is possible to increase the natural mutation frequency in plants cells dramatically by using chemical mutagens or radiation. Although it is possible to do this without using tissue culture, tissue culture provides a safe enclosed and conditioned environment, which is compact, fast and more efficient.
Another possibility is the use of somaclonal variation caused by a phase of an unorganized growth in tissue culture.
