Genotype has a large effect on the ability of immature soybean cotyledons to undergo auxin-stimulated somatic embryogenesis. Among 33 soybean lines, all those showing good regeneration were found to have in their pedigrees one or both of the highly regenerative ancestral lines, 'Manchu' or 'A.K. Harrow'. When 'Manchu' was crossed with 'Shiro', a genotype showing extremely poor regeneration, F1 hybrid cotyledons showed intermediate regeneration capacity.
