Important advances have also been made in somatic embryogenesis as a source of cells and tissues for protoplasts culture and regeneration of transformed cells (OTONI, 1995; ANTHONY et al., 1999; REIS et al., 2007; SILVA et al., 2009; PINTO et al., 2011; PACHECO et al., 2012; ROCHA et al., 2012; 2015; 2016; ROSA et al., 2015; VIEIRA et al., 2018), as well as the in vitro conservation of germplasm (PACHECO et al., 2016).

Currently, successful orchid transformation protocols rely on an efficient regeneration procedure based on Somatic Embryogenesis (SE) and on culture conditions favoring the formation of the specific structures called Protocorm-Like-Bodies (PLBs), as a prerequisite for optimal clonal propagation (Young et al 2000, Texeira et al 2006, Cueva et al 2014).
Somatic embryogenesis is widely accepted by scientists as efficient method for plant micropropagation or genetic improvement which has the crucial role in plant production on the large scale [21,28,29].
