This report is the result of a project in the course Independent Projekt in Molecular Biotechnology at Uppsala University during the spring of 2014. The foremost purpose of the course is to give students the opportunity to carry through exstensive work in a project environment. This project was formed based on a comission from the biotechnology company SweTree Technologies, and the goal has been to compose a summary of the different techniques and methods that exist in the field of mass propagation of trees through the method of somatic embryogenesis.
The project group has obtained information about the area mainly throgh reading patents, trying to find key components and bottlenecks in other companies’ somatic embryogenesis technologies. This paper is divided into different sections, containing the patents of the automation of different steps in the process. This is to make it easier for readers to find information about the area they are interested in, as well as to illustrate the main parts of the process as percieved by the project group.
Currently, there are several automated solutions for almost every step in the process, some of which are already in use. All the information obtained shows that the cost and labour has decreased with the development of this technology. While there is still room for significant devolopment in order to produce a complete automated process, there is no doubt that this method is becoming an ever more important asset in the area of forestry. Our hope is that this report may be a useful tool for companies or laymen to geta grasp of the field of automated mass production of trees.
