World population increased at a tremendous pace during the 21th Century when the fastest seven billion was added to the human population at 2011, and at august 2016 human population increased up to 7.4 billion. Increase in population certainly requires extra land and water resources for urbanization, industrialization and agriculture. This extra pressure on land and water resources is already placing the environment under threat. Therefore, the development of modern biotechnology has produced crops resistant to both biotic and abiotic stress. Organisms produced with the biotechnological method show this method to be a proven, fast, stabile and steady mechanism for improvement and increase of genetic resources in agriculture. In vitro techniques of plant cell, tissue and organ cultures are no longer novel to us, and they are routine used for micropropagation and cloning of plant species. All these factors provide us a solid basis to discuss the relevance of sophisticated biotechnological methods as a tool for increasing and improving plant genetic resources, as well as for improving of agricultural biodiversity, which is the basic objective of this project proposal.
