Research Notes: Leaves as a source of somatic chromosomes for cytogenetic studies of soybeans
The cytogenetic study of soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] is difficult because of the physical properties of the chromosomes, i.e., size and number. In addition, the radical is thick and must be split in order to obtain proper penetration of treatment fluids. This is a tedious procedure and still requires eventual enzyme treatment to soften the root tip for effective squashing.
