Apomixis--The Asexual Revolution

Access to the article is free, however registration and sign-in are required. Apomixis is an asexual reproductive process in plants whereby seeds that are exact genetic replicas of the maternal genetic material are produced. Vielle Calzada, Crane, and Stelly argue that this process, if understood and harnessed, will revolutionize genetic engineering and seed production for agriculturally important crops.
